A Microsoft employee with InteropSystems, put together a project called “Unix to Windows Porting Dictionary for HPC,” which’s designed to streamline the porting of Unix apps on Windows, when it comes down to high performance computing environments. “This dictionary is organized by frequently used HPC Unix calls. Each entry show the Unix function, its Windows equivalent (if it exists), required header files, an example of use, and related discussion. As you (or your compiler) discovers functions that are platform-specific or otherwise need modification, you can look up the offending function to find out what changes should be done. Information not specific to a function as well as overall suggestions and strategies can be found in the Porting Tips,” revealed.
