I'm interested in the lex* and yacc* specifications for High Performance
FORTRAN. While on the subject of HPF, can anybody suggest references on
HPF for a beginner in the field of parallel computing? How much work would
have to be done to translate from HPF into a "true" parallel language,
like SISAL?

Any information will be helpful and thanks in advance are proffered
to any and all who respond.


*or any of its variants.

[The spec for HPF is available for FTP from several servers. It includes
a BNF syntax which should be straightforward to turn into yacc. See
message 93-05-122 for details. Nobody's reported any free
implementations. But I'd think that since HPF includes all of Fortran,
translating it to another language would be quite a challenge. -John]
