Using -fpp-name to specify an alternate preprocessor for Intel Fortran Compiler

The Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Composer Editions for Fortran Windows* and Linux* provide a new option "-fpp-name" supporting user specifying an alternate preprocessor to use with Fortran.

When it is specified with a preprocessor name the compiler will invoke the user-specified Fortran preprocessor by spawning a command with the following signature:

alt_fpp [ [-D<define>] ..]  [ [-I<include directory>] ..] inputfile

where "alt_fpp" is the name of the alternate processor. Output from the preprocessor goes to STDOUT and will be captured to any further processing.

Compiler options "Qoption,fpp,...­" and "Qlocation,fpp,...­" can be used to pass additional options to the preprocessor and specify its location.

Refer to the Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Composer Edition for Fortran product documentation for additional details.
