slow compile times after upgrade to CVF6.6

slow compile times after upgrade to CVF6.6

i recently upgraded my compiler from cvf5.0 to 6.6(A) and have noticed remarkably longer compile times. is there something i can do to cut down the time? i usually compile using the df command and the %LINK_F90% environment variable.

thanks,

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

How much RAM does your PC have? The only thing I can think of that would cause a noticeable slowdown is if you have insufficient RAM and Windows starts thrashing the pagefile.

hi, thanks for the quick reply, i have 261,680 kb ram. could the problem be with the way i am linking to imsl? i see there are various use statements to include the imsl subroutines, i had avoided these by using the command line compile and the %LINK_F90% environment variable.

thanks, the performance is *so* slow i am considering downgrading back to v 5.0

I doubt the linking is the problem. Where in the build stage is most of the time spent? You can see in the build tab what file is being compiled and when it is linking.

I suggest you send a description of the problem and a ZIP archive of your buildable project to us at vf-support@compaq.com - we'll take a look.
