Builds Faster Code Faster with Absoft’s Exclusive Dynamic AP Load Balancing Technology, OpenMP 3.0 support, SMP Analyzer, Tools Plug-in, New HPC Scientific & Engineering Math Library and more.

Absoft’s Pro Fortran tool suite is the most complete Fortran solution available for Windows. It automates building extremely fast parallel code on AMD and Intel multi-core systems and includes: AVX, APO, IPO, PGFDO compiler optimizers, and Absoft’s exclusive Dynamic AP load balancing technology which can increase performance up to 20% on multi-core systems. Pro Fortran includes OpenMP support, SMP Graphical Analyzer, Absoft Window Environment (AWE), External Libraries and Tools Plug-in, F2003/2008 extensions, enhanced Fx3 graphical debugger, HPC Scientific Engineering math library and 2D/3D graphics. CUDA GPU support via nVidia’s CUDA libraries or HMPP preprocessor. Link and debug compatible with Microsoft C/C++. IMSL v7.0 32/64-bit numerical library bundles (1000+ special function routines) are an available option. Compatible with Windows XP – Windows 7 and Windows HPC Server 2003/2008.

What’s New

Compiler

Absoft Window Environment (AWE) – Qt based application framework for Fortran.

  • The Absoft Window Environment is a cross platform ( Linux, Windows and OS X ) graphical user interface for Fortran programs. A sizable, scrollable window provides an interface to the Fortran pre-connected unit numbers for input and output. Additional windows can be created using a simple extension to the Fortran OPEN statement. The contents of individual windows can be saved to disk or printer. Additional menus can be added to invoke program subroutines and functions. AWE can be configured to run as either an MDI (multiple document interface) or SDI (single document interface).

AbsoftTools External Libraries and Tools Plugin Support

  • The AbsoftTools development environment has been enhanced to allow the integration of additional libraries and tools. When support is added for a particular library, adding that library to a user project is just a matter of marking a check box. Documentation on creating additional plugins is also provided.

Fx3 Debugger Matrix View Array Display

  • The Fx3 Debugger includes a new Matrix view for two dimensional arrays.

Intel AVX instruction set support.

  • Absoft Pro Fortran 2012 contains support for the new AVX instruction set in the compiler and the Fx3 Debugger.
