Disclosed is a programming system that allows specifying nested parallelism in Fortran programs which is essential for achieving a good load balancing in large-scale shared memory multiprocessors. Also, the programming environment makes the work of parallelizing a Fortran program by the user much easier compared to the previous tools.
