Reference Number : DPD200041913

Version : 11.1, 12.0

Product : Intel® Compiler Professional Edition 11.1, Intel® C++ Composer XE 2011

Operating System : Linux*

Problem Description : Code like the following:

#include <tr1/unordered_map>

When used in a compilation mode with gcc 4.3 or above will give the following error when compiled with the Intel compiler:

[shell:nogutter:nocontrols]$ icpc -Wall -c test.cpp /usr/include/c++/4.3.2/tr1/type_traits(240): error: invalid alignment value specified by attribute struct __attribute__((__aligned__((_Align)))) { } __align; ^ compilation aborted for test.cpp (code 2) [/shell:nogutter:nocontrols]
Resolution Status : This code now compiles with version 12.1 of the compiler, available in Intel® C++ Composer XE 2011 update 6 and above.  If you can't update compilers, you can use the following workaround.  Replace the #include above with the following code:

#define __aligned__   ignored
#include <tr1/type_traits>
#undef __aligned__
