.hpf File Extension

Developer: High Performance FORTRAN Forum
File type: High Performance Fortran File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .hpf. Files with the file extension .hpf can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .hpf files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .hpf file?

High Performance Fortran files are classified as developer files and are integrated with source code compilation specifications proprietary to High Performance FORTRAN Forum. The content of a High Performance Fortran file is also implemented with encoding standards, also proprietary to High Performance Fortran Forum, that are used to store data in the HPF format. The High Performance Fortran format is used to store executable files of programs developed using array syntax implemented by the High Performance Fortran application development software and the FORTRAN 90 program development application. Commands among other pieces of data like flow control statements can also be included in the content of an executable file saved in the .hpf format.

how to open a .hpf file?

Launch a .hpf file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .hpf file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .hpf files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .hpf file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .hpf file will open the correct application.

High Performance FORTRAN

High Performance FORTRAN

HPF or High Performance Fortran is a collective set of extensions to Fortran 90 with structures that support parallel computing. It is published and supported by HPFF, a coalition of industry, laboratory and academe representatives that work on HPF. HPF uses data parallel computation to support a single array’s computation to spread over multiple processors. This enables efficient application for MIMD and SIMD architectures. HPF features compiler directives for distributions recommended for array data, additional library routines that include parallel suffix/prefix, environmental inquiry, sorting operations and data scattering, extrinsic procedure interfacing to non-HPF parallel procedures like message passing, and new Fortran statements like FORALL and ability to make PURE [side-effect free] procedures.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .hpf files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .hpf. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
