-static crashes

-static crashes

Hello all,

First off, I don't know if this is a problem in ifort... I have a program that compiles and runs just fine until I link it with the "-static" option. Then, instead of running, it does

(idb) run
Thread received signal SEGV
stopped at [ function cvtas_a_to_t(...) 0x811c4c4]

The cvtas_a_to_t function is called somewhere before the program actually starts executing. I was also not able to find any documentation on this function.

Has anyone seen this before or know what this is about?

Cheers and many thanks

Hello again.

The crashing function cvtas_a_to_t is linked-in from libifcoremt.a. I still have not been able to find any documentation on what this function does or where it was called.


The routine in question converts a text form of a floating point number to double precision floating point. It would typically be called as part of a formatted READ statement. As it is an internal part of the compiler library, you would not find documentation on it.

I would first recommend ensuring that you have the latest available ifort installed. If the problem persists, please report it to Intel Premier Support.
