Description

IBM XL Fortran Enterprise Edition V9.1 for AIX

IBM XL Fortran Enterprise Edition V9.1 for AIX (formerly known as XL Fortran) is a tool for developing high performance applications. With extensive industry-leading optimization technology, it can provide you with a powerful development environment to build Fortran applications.

FORTRAN 77, Fortran 90, Fortran 95 standards, and Fortran 2003 draft standard: XL Fortran Enterprise Edition V9.1 for AIX is a compiler that complies with FORTRAN 77, Fortran 90, and Fortran 95 standards. It extends support for additional Fortran 2003 draft standard features. It also supports IBM and common industry extensions from various compiler vendors.

Newly supported Fortran 2003 features include:

  • The ISO_C_BINDING intrinsic module, BIND(C) attribute/statement, module variables, common block, subroutine/function and -qalign=bindc compiler suboption provide support for interoperability with C.
  • The PUBLIC/PRIVATE attribute for derived type components provides accessibility of each component.
  • The ASSOCIATE construct associates an entity with either a variable or the value of an expression.
  • Command-line argument intrinsics:
    • COMMAND_ARGUMENT_COUNT
    • GET_COMMAND_ARGUMENT
    • GET_ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLE
  • The FLUSH statement makes data from an external file available to other processes.
  • The ISO_FORTRAN_ENV intrinsic module provides public entities relating to the Fortran environment
  • The IMPORT statement makes named entities from the host scoping unit accessible in the interface body by host association.
  • The PROCEDURE statement declares a dummy procedure or external procedure.
  • The IOMSG= specifies for I/O statements allows the user to obtain an explanatory message on error, end-of-record, or end-of-life condition.
  • The NEW_LINE intrinsic returns a new line character.
  • The 2003std run-time option provides conformance checking of code for adherence to the Fortran 2003 draft standard.

OpenMP API: OpenMP is an industry specification describing a common set of APIs, which support Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) programming in C/C++ and Fortran on all architectures, including UNIX® and Windows NT™ platforms. OpenMP is a portable, scalable model that gives shared-memory parallel programmers a simple and flexible interface for developing parallel applications for platforms ranging from the desktop to the supercomputer.

XL Fortran Enterprise Edition V9.1 for AIX provides full support for the OpenMP Fortran API V2.0. For more information on the OpenMP Fortran API V2.0, visit

Exploiting the POWER5 Architecture and BladeCenter JS20: XL Fortran Enterprise Edition V9.1 for AIX not only exploits IBM PowerPC, POWER3, and POWER4 architectures, but also provides POWER5 exploitation. In addition, it adds new exploitation of IBM eServer BladeCenter JS20 with PowerPC 970 processor. The -qarch and -qtune compiler options instruct the compiler to generate and tune code to a specific architecture respectively. This allows the compiler to take advantage of machine-specific instructions to further improve performance. The -qarch option specifies the target architectures on which the resulting programs will run. The -qtune and -qcache options refine the degree of platform-specific optimization performed.

Industry-leading optimization technology: XL Fortran Enterprise Edition V9.1 for AIX includes industry-leading optimization technology. Through compiler options and directives, programmers are offered a number of ways to optimize their code. A range of optimization levels (-O2, -O3, -O4, and -O5) allow you to perform from comprehensive low-level optimization to more extensive whole-program optimization. Other compiler options for optimization include:

  • -qarch and -qtune instruct the compiler to generate code for a specific architecture.
  • -qhot allows for high-order transformations that specifically improve performance of loops.
  • -qipa invokes interprocedural analysis (IPA) and enables the compiler to optimize across different files (whole-program analysis); this can result in significant performance improvements.
  • -qpdf tunes optimizations through profile-directed feedback (PDF); results from sample program execution on "train" data sets are used to fine tune optimizations in conditional branches and frequently executed code sections.
  • -qshowpdf option, which is used together with -qpdf1 option, provides additional information to an executable so that the PDF record can be displayed by the showpdf tool.
  • Optimization utilities showpdf and mergepdf are used to view and manipulate information gathered by PDF (-qpdf1/-qpdf2) to enhance PDF-directed compilation.

Port or migration support: XL Fortran Enterprise Edition V9.1 for AIX provides Fortran language standards compliance. The xlf, f77, and fort77 commands enable maximum compatibility with existing FORTRAN 77 programs. The default options provided with the xlf90 command give access to the full range of Fortran 90 language features. Similarly, the default options provided with the xlf95 command give access to the full range of Fortran 95 language features.

In addition, XL Fortran Enterprise Edition V9.1 for AIX provides a comprehensive set of language extensions (such as intrinsic functions, data types) enabling ease of porting from other platforms and many different kinds of compiler vendors as well. Several options, including -qport, are offered to minimize your porting effort.

Run-time environment: XL Fortran Enterprise Edition V9.1 for AIX provides a run-time environment to support library modules and I/O services and utilities. The XL Fortran run-time environment includes both single-threaded and multi-threaded versions to maximize the performance available to both types of applications. Various aspects of the XL Fortran run-time, including I/O characteristics, error reporting, and obsolete language feature support can be controlled using environment variables.

New or changed compiler options and other features

  • -qflttrap=nanq detects all NaN values handled or generated by floating point instructions, including those not created by invalid operations.
  • -qport=nullarg treats an empty argument, which is delimited by a left parenthesis and a comma, two commas, or a comma and a right parenthesis, as a null argument.
  • -qmodule=mangle81 provides compatibility with V8.1 module naming conventions for non-intrinsic modules.
  • -qsaveopt saves the command-line options used for compiling a source file in the corresponding object file.
  • -qversion provides the version and release for the invoking compiler.
  • MASS libraries are available, including MASS scalar library and MASS vector library.
  • 32-bit and 64-bit modules are now included in a single module file.
  • In V9.1, XL Fortran Enterprise Edition for AIX eliminates support for:
    • License Use Management (LUM) tool
    • IBM Distributed Debugger which was provided as technical preview in XL Fortran V8.1 for AIX

Portable Application Solutions Environment (i5/OS PASE) support: XL Fortran Enterprise Edition V9.1 for AIX supports i5/OS PASE on IBM eServer iSeries™. i5/OS PASE provides a broad set of AIX interfaces, in a runtime that allows many AIX binaries to execute directly on the PowerPC processor of iSeries. An application running on i5/OS PASE is fully integrated with OS/400® and i5/OS work management, security, backup, file systems, and database. As of V5R2 OS/400 and V5R3 i5/OS, i5/OS PASE supports the installation of XL Fortran Enterprise Edition V9.1 for AIX. You can now compile applications directly within i5/OS PASE — a separate AIX system is not required. Note that a separate and additional user authorization (license) is required for installation and use of the XL Fortran Enterprise Edition V9.1 for AIX on i5/OS PASE.

Customization options: Select the appropriate feature numbers to customize your order with delivery options desired. These features can be specified on the initial or MES orders.

Example: If publications are not desired for the initial order, specify feature number 3470 to ship media only. For future updates, specify feature number 3480 to ship media updates only. If, in the future, publication updates are required, order an MES to remove feature number 3480; then, the publications will ship with the next release of the program.
