Compiler-dependent Functions and Fortran 90 Modules

Compiler-dependent functions occur whenever the compiler inserts into the object code function calls that are resolved in its run-time library (RTL). Linking of such code without the appropriate RTL will result in undefined symbols.
Intel® MKL
has been designed to minimize RTL dependencies.
In cases where RTL dependencies might arise, the functions are delivered as source code and you need to compile the code with whatever compiler you are using for your application.
In particular, Fortran 90 modules result in the compiler-specific code generation requiring RTL support. Therefore,
Intel® MKL
delivers these modules compiled with the Intel compiler, along with source code, to be used with different compilers.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
