  Adaptor 
 
    (Automatic  DAta  Parallelism  TranslatOR)  A  source  to 
  source  transformation  tool  that  transforms  {data  parallel} 
  programs  written  in  {Fortran  77}  with  {array}  extensions, 
  parallel  loops,  and  layout  directives  to  parallel  programs 
  with  explicit  {message  passing}.  ADAPTOR  generates  {Fortran 
  77}  host  and  node  programs  with  message  passing.  The  new 
  generated  source  codes  have  to  be  compiled  by  the  compiler  of 
  the  parallel  computer.
