I am looking for vectorizers or parallelizers for a research project. (I
have a scheme for translating parallel code into sequential and I want to
see whether I can translate their code into efficient sequential
implementations and vice-versa.) I'm most interested in publicly
available tools because I don't have a lot of money to spend on a tool
I'll only be using for a few months. I'm not picky about the
parallelizer's target language: Fortran, C, or any similar imperative
language is fine with me.

I know about Pat (Georgia Tech interactive source-to-source Parallelizing
Assistant Tool; and the Omega test (University
of Maryland array data dependence analyzer; I
haven't yet tried either but can give pointers to the code to those
interested. I also know about the commercial products KAP (Kuck &
Associates) and VAST (Pacific-Sierra Research), but don't have addresses
for either company and assume that they wouldn't fit my other needs. I
seem to recall a posting about a service where you emailed your code
somewhere and it came back with data dependences marked, but I can no
longer find a reference to it.

Other pointers would be greatly appreciated; I will be happy to summarize
to interested parties.
