You might be interested in High Performance Fortran which is designed for
automatic distribution of arrays over processors with all the message passing
handled automatically. Essentially, all you do is mark up your
program with a few distribution directives and the rest is done for you. For
scientific and engineering codes this is a very effective approach -
for ex, Gaussian elimination scales pretty linearly with processors even when
these are SPARC workstations connected by Ethernet!

N.A.Software have a HPF -> F90 mapper and a F90 compiler to go with it for a
variety of platforms incl transputer arrays.

You should contact Dr Norman Brown, <> for details.
