Inconsistent Compiler Error checking using Intel 10.1 FORTRAN on WIn 7
Currently using VS 2008 and Intel FORTRAN 10.1 on Win 7 enterprise. Running 32 bit version of these on a 64 bit machine. Using DEBUG settings only, compiler license is housed on a server.
I have been noticing that compliation and linking of some development code will show successful creation of an executible with no errors on several consecutive "rebuild solution" attempts. (sometimes as many as 5-8) However on a later attempt, with no changes to the code, the complier suddenly finds an error in variable type, syntax, etc that it did not find on the previous attempts. This seems rather unpredictable except that when it finally finds the error, it continues to find it. Errors range from undeclared variables to dummy and acutal argument types not matching.
It is a bit of a troubling mystery that it doesn't find those errors every time. Being a developer, I am concerned that I could create a binary that won't function correctly because the compiler missed an error during a "successful" attempt.
Look forward to replies. Thanks.
