Boring Backport

I’m in the process of porting some scientific code originally written in Fortran, which was then ported to Java, which was then ported to Habanero Java, back to Java, while maintaining a Habanero Java feature called array views. It’s incredibly frustrating… I wish I could replace myself with a short shell script.


Wow, I wish Java had operator overloading right now… Habanero Java has a primitive complex64 datatype, Java doesn’t. a+b*c becomes add(a,multiply(b,c))… in 5,000 lines.
