Specification is version 0.4, dated November 6, 1992.  See "Version
History" below for a description of the changes.

How to Get the High Performance Fortran Language Specification
==============================================================

There are three ways to get a copy of the draft:

        1. Anonymous FTP: The most recent draft is available on
           titan.cs.rice.edu in the directory public/HPFF/draft.
           Several files are kept there, including compressed
           postscript files of previous versions of the draft.  The
           most current version of this draft is 0.4, which can be
           retrieved as a tar file containing{*filter*}source
           (hpf-v04.tar) or in Postscript format (hpf-v04.ps);
           both of these are also available as compressed files.
           Several other sites also have the draft available in one or
           more formats, including think.com, ftp.gmd.de,
           theory.tc.cornell.edu, and minerva.npac.syr.edu.

        2. Electronic mail: The most recent draft is available from
           the Softlib server at Rice University.  This can be
           accessed in two ways:

                hpf-v04.ps" in the message body. The report is sent as a
                Postscript file.

                hpf-v04.tar.Z" in the message body. The report is
                sent as a uuencodeded compressed tar file containing
               {*filter*}source.

                hpf-v04.ps from hpf" in the message body.  The report
                is sent as a Postscript file.  This site also has the
               {*filter*}source of the draft; use "send index from hpf"
                to see the file names.

                "send hpf-v04.ps from hpff" in the message body.  The
                report is sent as a Postscript file.
           (In all cases, the reply is sent as several messages to
           avoid mailer restrictions; edit the message bodies together
           to obtain the whole file.)  The same files can be obtained


           because real people have to answer the mail.

        3. Hardcopy: The most recent draft is available as technical report
           CRPC-TR 92225 from the Center for Research on Parallel
           Computation at Rice University.  Send requests to
                Theresa Chapman
                CITI/CRPC, Box 1892
                Rice University
                Houston, TX 77251
           There is a charge of $50.00 for this report to cover copying and
           mailing costs.

Disclaimers
===========

A few caveats about the HPF draft:

        A. The current version contains some material that is still
           under active discussion.  Changes will be fairly frequent
           until at least December 1992.  New versions will be
           announced on the HPFF mailing list and in the newsgroups
           comp.parallel, comp.lang.misc, and comp.lang.fortran.

        B. The HPF Language Specification does not necessarily
           represent the official view of any individual, company,
           university, government, or other agency.

        C. Please address any questions, comments, or possible

           Include the chapter number you are commenting on in the
           "Subject:" line of the message.

Version History
===============

Version 0.1:
August 14, 1992
EXTREMELY preliminary version.  

First collection of the proposals active in the High Performance Fortran
Forum.  Established much of the outline for later documents, and
represented most decisions made through the July HPFF meeting.

Version 0.2:
September 9, 1992
Version discussed at the September 10-11 HPFF meeting

Changes:
General cleaning up of version 0.1.
Inclusion of most new proposals at that time.

Version 0.3:
October 12, 1992
Version discussed at the October 22-23 HPFF meeting

Changes:
Numerous minor and major changes due to discussions at the September meeting.
Added a section on "Model of Computation".
Presented alternate chapters for data distribution with and without
templates.
Added two proposals for ON clauses specifying where computation is to
be executed.
Added distribution inquiry intrinsics.
Total rewrite of I/O material, sending most previous material to the
Journal of Development.

Version 0.4:
November 6, 1992
Version to be presented at Supercomputing '92

Changes:
Numerous minor and major changes due to discussions at the October
meeting.
"Acknowledgements" section now much more accurate.
"The HPF Model" (replacing "Model of Computation") substantially
simplified and improved.
"Distribution without Templates" chapter removed.
Many proposals not adopted moved to "Journal of Development".
