Compiling an Application that Calls the Intel® Math Kernel Library and Uses the CVF Calling Conventions

The IA-32 architecture implementation of
Intel® MKL
supports the Compaq Visual Fortran* (CVF) calling convention by providing the stdcall interface.
Although the
Intel® MKL
does not provide the CVF interface in its Intel® 64 architecture implementation, you can use the Intel® Visual Fortran Compiler to compile your Intel® 64 architecture application that calls
Intel® MKL
and uses the CVF calling convention. To do this:
  • Provide the following compiler options to enable compatibility with the CVF calling convention:
    /Gm
    or
    /iface:cvf
  • Additionally provide the following options to enable calling
    Intel® MKL
    from your application:
    /iface:nomixed_str_len_arg

Product and Performance Information

1

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.
