Quickie:I was comiling something with the -i8 flag (should force integers to be kind=8, unless specifically overriden by source e.g. integer(4) :: myint), and it wouldn't run.... System protested "Permission denied." I thought, that's weird. Anyway so then I did $ chmod +x and tried $ and got: cannot execute binary file FINALLY I realized that I hadn't typed "-i8", I had typed "-i": $ ifort -i .F90 Soon as I changed it to -i8, or just dropped it entirely, things worked fine. So my question is, what DOES a plain -i flag do? I can't find it in man, or info, or ifort -help. Thanks, Peter
