Description:  FIDISOL (Finite difference solver) is a program package for the solution of nonlinear systems of 2D and 3D elliptic and parabolic differential equations subject to arbitrary nonlinear boundary conditions on a rectangular domain. The solution method is a variable stepsize/variable order finite difference method. This paper is a survey of the project at the University of Karlsruhe in which the principles of developing a fully vectorized program package designed as a data flow algorithm for vector computers are obtained. Included are iterative solvers for large sparse linear systems. For details the reader is referred to a paper by the authors and {\it H. Muller} [The FIDISOL program package, Internal Report No.27/85, Computer Center, University of Karlsruhe, 75 Karlsruhe, FRG (1985)].
