Specification is version 0.2, dated September 9, 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
           0.2, which can be retrieved as a tar file containing{*filter*}source
           (draft-v02.tar) or in Postscript format (draft-v02.ps); both of these
           are also available as compressed files.

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

                    draft-v02.ps" in the message body. The report is sent as a
                        Postscript file.

                    draft-v02.tar.Z" in the message body. The report is sent as a
                        uuencodeded compressed tar file containing{*filter*}source.
           (In both 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 from David Loveman

           replies will take longer 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 $4.00 for this report to cover copying and
           mailing costs.

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

A few caveats about the HPF draft:

        A. The current version contains much material that has not been
           formally approved, and in some places contains mutually exclusive
           alternatives that are under consideration.  It should not be
           considered "official" in any real sense.

        B. 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.

        C. Please address any questions, comments, or possible inconsistencies
           in the draft to the person(s) in charge of the chapter concerned,

        D. General comments can be sent to David Loveman
