that's a pitty and I regret that there is so few interest in this. I had
emails flipping around between C. Bergström and myself since I wanted to
the compiler suite for some software I needed for my
thesis, but I never got a copy. Maybe the response was so incredible low
he decided not
to respond anymore.
Since I think the PathScale compiler, even if commercial, would be a
since it uses openMP similar HMPP syntax and embedded #pragmas, it would be
a tremendous benefit for developers just shifting their code nearly
unchanged simply by adjusting their OpenMP #pragma omp towards #pragma hmpp.
But the lack of response and non-shown interests shows a undeobtly
signal that freeBSD seems to be
dead for the HPC community and this could be also an indication for the
