.Net support

Do I understand correctly that Intel Visual Fortran integrates into the Visual Studio .Net environment, but does NOT target the Common Language Runtime? Is there any plan to do so in the future?

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

There is not yet a product called "Intel Visual Fortran". But the first release of that product, when it appears, will not generate interpreted (managed) bytecode, aka the CLR. It will (we expect) offer tools to facilitate mixing native Fortran code with .NET services and code.

We have no current plans to generate managed code, but it remains an option for the future. We believe that our customers' primary interests are high performance and complete language support, something very difficult to achieve with managed code.

That would be very nice. We are using .NET more and more around here, and we also have a lot of numerical code written in FORTRAN. It would be nice to have facilities which make merging the two easier.

You believe correctly.

Thanks for your responses, they have been very helpful. I look forward to using your product.
