Description

Currently there is no clear scheme with which to give unique names to publically visible members of the library.

This includes the following:

  • C functions with external linkage.
  • C declarations (types, variables) visible to user-code via included headers.
  • Fortran module names (the included functions/types etc. need not have a prefix thanks to Fortran's renaming facility).
The current contenders for the prefix-string are:
Präfix Bedeutung Florian Jörg Panagiotis Thomas
PPM Parallelization and Partitioning Module 1 1 0 0
EPM ESM Parallelization Module 0 0 1 0
PU Parallel Utilities library 0 0 0 1
