We present a unified approach to compiling Fortran 77D and Fortran 90D programs for efficient execution of MIMD distributed-memory machines. The integrated Fortran D compiler relies on two key observations. First, array constructs may be scalarized into FORALL loops without loss of information. Second, loop fusion, partitioning, and sectioning optimizations are essential for both Fortran D dialects.
