Tutorial: Coarray Fortran Overview

The coarrays feature of Fortran 2008 provides a Single Program Multiple Data (SPMD) approach to parallelism, which is integrated into the Fortran language for ease of programming. An application using coarrays runs the same program, called an image, in parallel, where coarray variables are shared across the images in a model called Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS).
This tutorial shows you how to build and run a serial application, and then convert it to run in parallel using coarrays.
32-bit coarrays are deprecated and will be removed in a future release.
About This Tutorial

Learning Objectives
Building and running a Fortran coarray application.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
