Abstract

OpenMP was recently proposed by a group of vendors as a programming model for shared memory parallel architectures. Thr growing popularity of such systems, and the rapid availability of product-strength compilers for OpenMP, seem to guarantee a broad take-up of this paradigm if appropriate tools for application development can be provided. POST is an EU-funded project that is developing a productm based on FORESYS from Simulog, which aims to reduce the human effort involved ub the creation of OpenMP code. Additional research within the project focuses on alternative techniques to support OpenMP application development that target a broad variety of users. Functionnality ranges from fully automatic strategies to novice users, the provision of parallelisation hints, and step-by-step strategies to porting code, to a range of transformations and source code analyses that may be used by experts, including the ability to create application specific transformations. The work is accompanied by the development of OpenMP versions of several industrial applications.
