Empty lines in Intel C++ compiler output for Debug configurations ( 32-bit & 64-bit )

Empty lines in Intel C++ compiler output for Debug configurations ( 32-bit & 64-bit )

I'd like to report an issue with Intel C++ compiler output for Debug configurations ( 32-bit & 64-bit ): There are empty lines and please take a look ( I marked empty lines with * empty * label ):

[ Intel(R) C++ Compiler XE 13.0.0.089 [IA-32] - Debug - There are empty lines ]

Note: I don't consider these empty lines as a significant issue but it affects some Output Parsing software subsystem. Thanks in advance.

The same issue happens with Intel(R) Visual Fortran Compiler XE ( I marked empty lines with * empty * label ):

Could you please specify Visual Studio version?

>>...Could you please specify Visual Studio version?

It is Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition ( All SPs installed ) under Windows 7 Professional ( All SPs installed ). Thanks.

I saw the issue, it's not so bad. It separates out the MS tools' output. It's pretty minor.

I will file a low bug report.

Thanks, Jennifer.

Absolutely agree that it is 'pretty minor' and that is why I made a note '..don't consider these empty lines as a significant issue...'. I'll be glad to see if it is investigated and fixed in some future update of Intel C++ compiler.

Hi Sergey,

Update to this issue: those extra empty lines are from msvc's resource compiler. so we can not remove it easily, and will not be fixed.  

Thanks,
Jennifer 

Thanks for the update, Jennifer. Unfortunately, I still don't understand why these empty lines are not shown when Microsoft C++ tool-chain is used. Please see section:

in my 1st post. Interesting, the same version 6.1.6723.1 of Microsoft (R) Windows (R) Resource Compiler is used in both cases (!).
