High Performance Fortran

<language> (HPF) A data parallel language extension to Fortran 90 which provides a portable programming interface for a wide variety of target platforms.

The original HPF language specification was produced by the High Performance Fortran Forum, a broad consortium of industry and academia, which met regularly throughout 1992 and early 1993.

HPF compilers are now available on most commonly-used computing systems, and users are beginning to gain first hand experience with this language.

The Forum has continued to meet in order to address advanced topics.
