R supports systems with FORTRAN 77 and 90/95 compilers including any  
extensions such as HPF. R itself doesn't care (it accepts .f90, .f95  
etc.) - it's up to you to use a compiler that suits you. Depending on  
the exact HPF extensions you're using it may work with a F95 compiler.  
The most commonly used compiler is GNU Fortran so you may test your  
code with that (it also supported OpenMP which effectively supersedes
