I've just converted from Absoft to Intel as my FORTRAN compiler. The only thing I don't like is that it takes several minutes to re-compile. Specifically, the compiling stage goes very quickly, but after the Output says "Linking...", it takes several minutes. I'm using the MKL library for FFTs and two small libraries that I wrote, one in FORTRAN, the other in C. Does anyone know why the linking takes so long and if there's a way to speed up the link process? The Absoft compiler took just a few seconds for the same task. Thanks.
