PGI Workstation HPF


F77, F95 and HPF for 64-bit x64 and 32-bit x86 processor-based systems.

PGI Fortran Workstationis PGI's Fortran compiler bundle. PGI Fortran Workstation includes a single user node-locked license for all of the PGI Fortran compilers, for PGDBG® OpenMP and MPI graphical debugger and for PGPROF® OpenMP and MPI graphical performance profiler.

If you develop or maintain scientific and technical applications, chances are you have a big investment in Fortran. After fifty years, it's still the cornerstone of technical computing. The PGI Fortran Workstation Fortran compilers deliver outstanding performance on 64-bit x64 and 32-bit x86 processor-based workstations and servers, and enable simple portable parallel programming for both shared-memory and clustered computing systems. Whether you have legacy FORTRAN 77 that relies on Cray, DEC, or IBM extensions, or are writing modern parallel codes in OpenMP Fortran 95 or High Performance Fortran (HPF), PGI Fortran Workstation has all the features you need.

PGI Fortran Workstation is highly optimized for 64-bit and 32-bit workstations and servers running Linux, Apple Mac OS X or Microsoft Windows. You'll have the option of parallelizing your applications automatically, or by using explicit HPF or OpenMP directives. PGI's outstanding performance allows you to build high performance applications for multi-core and multi-processor workstations which can then run unchanged on workstation clusters, shared-memory servers, or high-end distributed-memory or NUMA supercomputers.

The PGI Fortran Workstation package includes the PGF95™ Fortran 95 compiler, the PGF77® FORTRAN 77 compiler, and the PGHPF High Performance Fortran compiler. PGF95 and PGF77 support automatic parallelization for SMP workstations using a simple compiler switch, and full native support for OpenMP directive-based SMP parallel programming. Many vendors support parallelization using simple add-on pre-processing technology, but PGI Fortran Workstation offers the only parallel compilers, debugger and profiler available with parallel distributed-memory and parallel shared-memory support integrated into the compilers and tools. The end result is quicker development, higher performance and much higher reliability for the programmer. There are also no parallel runtime fees of any kind—the executable files produced by the PGI Fortran Workstation compilers can be executed on any compatible system regardless of whether PGI Fortran Workstation is installed. Please see the Portability Package FAQ for more information.

PGI Fortran Workstation includes debugging and profiling support for up to eight local MPI processes.

PGI Fortran Workstation for both Mac OS X and Windows consists of command-level versions of the PGI compilers and both command-level and graphical versions of the OpenMP parallel PGDBG debugger and PGPROF performance profiler. An integrated development environment (IDE) is neither provided nor supported. As a separate product, PGI Visual Fortran fully integrates PGI Fortran compilers and tools into Microsoft Windows using Microsoft Visual Studio.

This product targets 64-bit x64 and 32-bit x86 workstations with one or more single core or multi-core microprocessors running Linux, Mac OS X or Windows.

About PGI Accelerator Compilers
With Release 9.0, the PGI Fortran 95 compiler supports directive-based programming of x64+NVIDIA Linux systems; PGF95 accelerator compiler is supported on all Intel and AMD x64 processor-based systems with CUDA-enabled NVIDIA GPUs.

PGI Accelerator compilers are included in all PGI Linux download packages. Either trial license keys or updated permanent license keys are required to enable them. Please see the PGI Accelerator page for more information.
