Option -Bsymbolic can cause dangerous side effects

-Bsymbolic (defined at the following location: http://sourceware.org/binutils/docs-2.16/ld/Options.html#Options)†  may seem to solve many problems. Unfortunately, –Bsymbolic is a dangerous option which can often result in some nonintuitive side effects.

  • Linux*
  • C/C++
  • Fortran
  • Intel® C++ Compiler
  • Intel® Fortran Compiler
  • Performance Tools for Software Developers - Using -Bsymbolic Results in Infinite Loop in __intel_cpu_indicator_init

    Symptom(s):

    When you create a shared library linking libirc.a statically (for example using –i_static) and using –Bsymbolic your application gets stuck in an infinite loop in __intel_cpu_indicator_init.

    Cause:

  • Linux*
  • C/C++
  • Fortran

    The Intel AppUp show for developers "Show 12": in this segment of SkypeUp, Host Bob Duffy interviews Technical Marketing Engineer, Srinivas Sathyan, about the top five common validation issues and mistakes when submitting apps; the two will share the inside scoop on how developers can improve their experience with getting apps into AppUp. During the AppUp RoundUp segment, Host Rhonda Peters shows off the Fine Cooking Menu Maker, one of the most popular cookbook apps in the AppUp center.

    Intel® Fortran Compiler for Linux* - Specifying -lm or -lc may impact application performance

    Specifying -lm (link to GNU math library) or -lc (link to GNU C library) when building your application with the Intel® Fortran Compiler for Linux* may impact application performance.

    When no math library is specified the Intel® Fortran Compiler for Linux* by default links to Intel's math library (libimf), which is optimized for performance. Similarly, if no C library is specified, the Intel Fortran Compiler for Linux uses routines from Intel's libirc, also optimized for performance, instead of libc.
