I am using Intel C++ compiler XE 13 with Visual Studio 2012 (or 2010). I created a very simple console application (see attached file) to test the _Quad type using the compiler option "-Qoption,cpp,--extended_float_type". The following is all the code.
int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv)
_Quad* p = new _Quad;
p = 1.1;
When I run the application in release mode (without using debugger), the program crashes (although it may not crash on the first try, but on the thrid or fourth try). Can anybody repeat this behavior? The crash does not happen if I use stack memory instead of free store.
