Rebuilding using an earlier version of the compiler
By Joe2
This question is about rebuilding code using a version of the Intel Visual Fortran compiler which is different from the one originally used. Some colleagues provide us with an executable file and its Fortran source code. We generally need to make minor changes to the source code and then re-build to create a slightly amended executable. This has worked fine in the past, but we have recently found that in some circumstances our re-built executable has significantly longer run-times than the original executable (e.g. one day instead of one hour). We observe the same problem even if we re-build without making any changes to the code and even though we use the same Visual Studio settings as our colleagues. We believe that the cause of the problem may be that we and our colleagues are now using different versions of the Intel Visual Fortran Compiler (we use v11.0 of the Intel Visual Fortran Compiler with Visual Studio 2008; they use v13.0 of the Intel Visual Fortran Compiler with Visual ...
F12 Visual Studio 2013 not work
By Lester L.3
The Text Editor- Fortran - Advanced functions have stopped working for VS 2013 using Intel Fortran 2015. When I first installed VS 2013 I activated some of the advanced text editing functions such as the F12 function (Go To Definition). I was pleasantly surprised that it was worked as many years ago this functionality was flaky. I then activated all the rest of the flags (keeping the Disable database =False) as per Steve Lionel's "Learn to Be An Intel Visual Fortran Power User - Part 1" YouTube video and soon after I tried other features all this advanced functionality stopped working including F12. I have tried making a new project, turning off some flags but I cannot get it to work again. Such a nuisance compare to Eclipse + Photran. Does it work for anyone else? Any ideas? Thank you.
ifortvars.bat not setting PATH to ifort.exe binary

Dear all, I have been trying to achieve the same as Simon in https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/topic/294900, with following setup: This is on a Windows Server 2012 using Visual Studio 2013 and Visual Fortran 15.0. More precisely Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2013 Version 12.0.31101.00 Update 4 Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4.5.51209 together with Intel(R) Visual Fortran Compiler XE 15.0 Update 1 for Windows* Intel(R) Debugger Extension 7.7-8.0 for Intel(R) Many Integrated Core Architecture Like Simon, we use ifortvars.bat on an older machine, and I can then run cl, nmake and link to build a cross-language DLL. I found ifortvars.bat and according to its documentation, should run it with arguments "intel64 vs2013", and while this does set some paths (like Simon, I compared the output of set before and afterwards), it fails to set the path to the actual ifort.exe binary, and to the SDK tools such as cl, nmake and link.

Run-time diagnostics for shape mismatches in array assignments possible?
By FortranFan1
This is based on discussions in this thread at comp.lang.fortran: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/comp.lang.fortran/OCWxsF-Tm0U. The following simple code compiles with no errors or warnings with Intel Fortran and raises no run-time exceptions during the i=j array assignment at line 17 even though the array extents are different (as noted on the comp,lang.fortran forum, NAgFor does give a run-time error).  Run-time diagnostics is set to /check:all.  Is it possible to give some run-time diagnostics here? module m implicit none contains subroutine s ( i ) !.. Argument list integer, intent(inout) :: i(:) !.. Local variables integer :: j(2) !.. j = 42 i = j end subroutine s end module m program p use m, only : s implicit none integer :: ia(1) ia = 0 call s(ia) write (*,*) " ia = ", ia stop end program p Upon execution, ia = 42 Press any key to continue . . .

Intel Fortran integration with Visual Studio: improved syntax highlighting?
By FortranFan6
I just noticed VALUE attribute and MOVE_ALLOC intrinsic procedure do not get highlighted in Visual Studio file editor; I presume there are also other such items that are not getting highlighted? So is it possible for Intel Fortran integration with Visual Studio to be improved to allow syntax highlighting for the full list of keywords, etc. in the current Fortran standard? Periodically a paper is published in ACM Fortran Forum (Gorelik is usually the author) listing the "Statements, data types and intrinsic procedures in the Fortran standards."  It may be a good starting point for the Intel Fortran team team to check. By the way, for forum posts involving code snippets, how does the highlighting work?  Is that dependent on one's individual browser or something on the Intel server side?  In the code snippets too, one can notice certain Fortran standard keywords not getting highlighted.
Can I actually buy this product?
By Nic R.3
Hi, after much searching of this site I now know two things, 1) There exists an Intel Fortran Compiler 2) It is impossible to buy it from Intel Seriously, I can access the description page but for the life of me cant find anywhere to actually buy it! A simple link from the description page would suffice!

Compiler Memory Errors
By ereisch2
This isn't a problem, per se, but in trying to gather more information for one of the infamous "catastrophic internal errors", I ran ifort 12.0.0 (and its descendants) through valgrind.  ifort had several dozen memory access errors (mostly jump-based-on-uninitialized), and fortcom had over 1,000 errors reported (mostly use of uninitialized variables).  You guys might want to consider adding memory profiling tests to your pre-release software qualification suite.
