Subject: [OMPI devel] RFC: Fortran support in Open MPI Extensions
From: Josh Hursey (jjhursey_at_[hidden])
Date: 2011-06-08 10:11:24


WHAT: Fortran 77 and 90 support for the Open MPI Extensions

WHY: Trunk only supports C.

WHERE: build system updates, ompi/mpiext

WHEN: Open MPI trunk

TIMEOUT: Friday, June 10, 2011 COB

Details:
-------------------------------------------
A bitbucket branch is available here (last sync to r24757 of trunk)
  https://bitbucket.org/jjhursey/ompi-ext-fortran

The current Open MPI trunk supports only C interfaces to Open MPI
interface extensions. This branch adds support for f77 and f90.
Supporting these three language interfaces enables Fortran
applications to take advantage of available interface extensions.
Configure detects if the extension supports C, f77, and/or f90 and
takes the appropriate action. The C interfaces are required, and the
f77/f90 interfaces are optional. This fix does not require changes to
any existing extensions.
