The PAPI library comes with a specific Fortran library interface. The
Fortran interface covers the complete library with a few minor
exceptions. Functions returning C pointers to structures, such as
, are either not implemented in the Fortran interface, or implemented with
different calling semantics.
Semantics for specific functions in the Fortran interface are
documented on the equivalent C man page. For example, the semantics
and functionality of
PAPIF_accum are covered in the
architectures the following relation holds between the pseudo-types
listed and Fortran variable types.
|C_INT||INTEGER||Default Integer type|
|C_FLOAT||REAL||Default Real type|
|C_LONG_LONG||INTEGER*8||Extended size integer|
|C_INT FUNCTION||EXTERNAL INTEGER FUNCTION||Fortran function returning integer result
|C_INT(*)||Array of corresponding type
||C_TYPE(*) refers to an array of the corresponding Fortan type.
The length of the array needed is context dependent. It may be
e.g. PAPI_MAX_HWCTRS or PAPIF_num_counters.
Array arguments must be of sufficent size to hold the input/output
from/to the subroutine for predictable behavior. The array length is
indicated either by the accompanying argument or by internal PAPI
definitions. For details on this see the corresponding C routine.
C_STRING as an argument are on most implementations capable of reading the
character string length as provided by Fortran. In these implementations
the string is truncated or space padded as necessary. For other
implementations the length of the character array is assumed to be
of sufficient size. No character string longer than
PAPI_MAX_STR_LEN is returned by the PAPIF interface.
