compiling fortran code in Linux

compiling fortran code in Linux

I got the following massage while I was compiling my fortran code in Linux. Can anyone help me to resolve it?

mp.f(1910): remark #8290: Recommended relationship between field width 'W' and the number of fractional digits 'D' in this edit descriptor is 'W>=D+3'.
1061 FORMAT ( 1X, F10.2,1X,F8.6,1X,F9.3,I10,4X,2I10, 1X, I10, 4F10.2 )

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

This informational message is suggesting that the F8.6 format might be too small and result in the field overflowing. I'm not sure how helpful this is, however, as such overflowing would be dependent on the magnitude of the value. I will suggest to the developers that this message not be put out for F format.

You can ignore the message.

We've removed this diagnostic for a future release. The intentions were good, but in this case there's nothing useful to be reported.

By the way, this is one of those questions where the answer is the same for ifort Windows and linux, so it doesn't matter that it was asked on Windows forum.
