Just wanted to let folks know that they should upgrade to CVF 6.6a, expecially if they have been frustrated with long compile times. Since I have previously critized the CVF compiler in this area in this forum, I wanted to applaud CVF developers for a significant upgrade in terms of code development for my code.
After upgrading, it now takes me 1.25 minutes to compile my 11,000 line code versus > 5 minutes with CVF 6.6 using debug options w/o bounds checking on. With bounds checking on, it takes 4.75 mintues, and with full optimizations it takes 6.5 minutes oin a 1.4 GHz Athlon machine. All of these are significantly faster than V6.6 and kudos to the CVF developers for focusing on what I consider to be the only real drawback to using CVF FORTRAN versus other compilers like Lahey and Salford.
The 1.25 minutes for compilation is getting back into the workable realm for code development and maintenance. Here's hoping that they will continue improving the compilation times under the debug options in the future, particularly with array bounds checking turned on. CVF users will then have the "best of all worlds". Thanks CVF,
