OPEN MP, CVF and AMD?

OPEN MP, CVF and AMD?

Hello

I work with a huge Fortran 90 codes, all the OPEN MP instructions are already written, and it runs fairly well with Unix (SUN OS)

I'd like to do the same with Win 2000 Pro, and CVF v6.6A

1st Question:

Is the KAP/OPEN MP fully compatible with CVF v6.6A? Do the work hand in hand as suggested by Compaq?

2nd Question:

Is this KAP/OPEN MP a sort of library used by CVF? or rather a compiler in itself and working independently? (I'm not sure I uderstood clearly from the website)

3rd Question:

I have an AMD dual computer (Athlon MP, 2GHz and 4Gb RAM)

Since KAP/OPEN MP is developed by Intel, I was wondering if it is gonna work with AMD CPUs ... CVF v6.6A is fully operational with AMD but will it be the same when working with the KAP/OPEN MP toolset from Intel?

I thank you for your advices and time

Cheers

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

KAP for OpenMP is a preprocessor and a library. The preprocessor reads your Fortran source, does some transformations (including inserting calls to library routines), then calls the compiler (CVF in this case) to actually compile the code, and then it is linked with the library. As far as we know, this process still works well.

KAP doesn't know anything special about AMD processors. You can use CVF's /arch:k7 option to get AMD-optimized code.
