Creating a New Project
When you create a project, Microsoft Visual Studio* automatically creates a corresponding solution to contain it. To create a new Intel® Fortran project using Microsoft Visual Studio*:
This topic outlines the basic steps for using the Intel® Fortran Compiler with Microsoft Visual Studio*.
If you have more than one version of the Intel® Fortran Compiler installed, you can choose which version to be used when building applications. You can also select different versions for different target platforms and the version of the compiler you are using. The target platform you select determines the compiler versions that appear in the Selected drop-down box.
To select the compiler version:
You can specify additional Fortran free format and fixed format file extensions to be recognized as valid file extensions within the IDE. The IDE treats these additional extensions as compilable Fortran source files. You can also remove or modify existing extensions.
The Intel® Fortran Compiler installs a number of sample programs. These samples illustrate a variety of concepts including:
Creating console applications
Creating QuickWin applications
Creating Win32 applications
Using mixed-language support
Using OpenGL* in Fortran applications
You can quickly navigate the code of the file currently open in the source editor using the Tree Navigation Window. The Tree Navigation Window displays the following components of the file as nested, selectable nodes in a tree:
A configuration contains settings that define the final binary output file that you create within a project. It specifies the type of application to build, the platform on which it is to run, and the tool settings to use when building.
Debug and Release Configurations
When you create a new project, Visual Studio* automatically creates the following configurations:
