Working with Intel node Fortran on the Paragon

We have also ported the Fortran interface to the Intel Paragon. Unfortunately, Fortran90 type compiler is not available on the Paragon, so we can only experiment with the Intel Fortran77 compiler. Since the Fortran interface is designed to be portable, most of what we have discussed for the CM-5 still applies for the Paragon. The pC++ program in the previous section can be directly ported to the Paragon without any change except that the layout specifications are ignored on the Paragon. FArrays become normal C++ arrays since there is no vector unit attached to the i860 processor. Nevertheless, the overloaded operators make array element access conceptually easier. The Fortran90 style subroutine has to be changed with vector expressions being converted to do-loops.
