Abstract

To provide high-level graphical support for developing message passing programs, an integrated programming environment (GRADE) is being developed. GRADE provides tools to construct, execute, debug, monitor and visualise message-passing based parallel programs. GRADE provides a general graphical interface that hides low-level details of the underlying message-passing system thus, it allows the user to concentrate on really important aspects of parallel program development such as task decomposition.

The current paper describes the translation mechanism that is applied in GRADE to generate the executable message-passing code from the high-level graphical description of the user application.
