I have a problem with a particular piece of code (which is not mine to simply rearrange at will) which causes ifc's optimizer to consume larger and larger amounts of memory until either it crashes (at -O3) or simply locks the machine up for 5 minutes paging (at -O2).
The code in question consists of very large nested case statement, which are actually machine-generated. To be fair to Intel, many other compilers exhibit exactly the same behaviour.
Is there any way of selectively reducing the optimization level for a single subroutine in a module? The Cray compilers had a directive to do this, and I wonder if anything similar exists for ifc.
