in the past one of the fortran routines I am using in context of a large software project caused trouble when
optimization was requested. This problem went away a few
versions of ifc ago. Now I am looking at an unrelated code
segment and find that the program crashes when asking for
optimized compilation and works fine without.
In general, is that a 'feature' of ifc and indicates, well
not well programmed code, or is this more like a problem
with the optimizing algorithm and will be fixed? Should I try and isolate/understand the specifics or is it enough
to provide the 'broken' code?
