IBM XL Fortran for Linux key features
Allows you to offload compute-intensive parts of an application and associated data to the NVIDIA GPUs by using the OpenMP device constructs.
Provides programmers with a set of instructions that enables GPU acceleration for data-parallel computations. You can increase computing performance of many applications by using CUDA directly or by linking to GPU-accelerated libraries.
Exploitation of the latest POWER9 architecture
Provides the architecture and tune compiler options and builtins functions to explore POWER9.
High performance libraries
Includes the Mathematical Acceleration Subsystem (MASS) and Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) libraries for high-performance mathematical computing.
Interprocedural analysis (IPA)
Optimizes across different files (whole-program analysis), and it can result in significant performance improvements.
Language standard compliance
Supports FORTRAN 77, Fortran 90, Fortran 95, Fortran 2003, and a subset of the Fortran 2008 standard; supports a subset of Technical Specification 29113 for further interoperability of Fortran with C; helps to protect investments in existing Fortran source and object code built with previous versions of the compilers; supports compatibility of object code or libraries compiled with previous versions of XL Fortran with the newest XL Fortran compiler and runtime environment.
Provides important information to help you develop and debug your applications more efficiently with the compiler listings, XML reports, and HTML reports.
Symbolic debugger support
Provides debugging information in your compiled objects when you use different levels of the -g or -qdbg compiler option.
