GenASiS Basics provides Fortran 2003 classes furnishing extensible object-oriented utilitarian functionality for large-scale physics simulations on distributed memory supercomputers. This functionality includes physical units and constants; display to the screen or standard output device; message passing; I/O to disk; and runtime parameter management and usage statistics. This revision – Version 3 of Basics – includes a significant name change, some minor additions to functionality, and a major addition to functionality: infrastructure facilitating the offloading of computational kernels to devices such as GPUs.
