Intel® C++ Compiler


I have been operating an open source chess program tournament for a long time, and I have noticed that some contestants compiled with the Intel compiler crash and result in the engine losing the game as well as spawning an error message in Windows

I have Visual Studio and I have tried new project and loaded one of the problem engines and after cleaning up some defects related to the C++ ISO standard I was able to make a stable x64 build

now the program works fine, so this tells me the Intel compiler needs some work on it to eliminate the crashing



I'm getting symbol _cilk_spawn could not be resolved when compiling with icpc


Im using Ubuntu 14.04 & eclipse & intel compiler v 15

I have 2 same cilk programs (one with as c program and the other as cpp program).

I can compile it with icc (without any problem) 

But when I'm using icpc (cpp program) I'm getting errors: symbol _cilk_spawn could not be resolved 

In those same 2 programs Im not using any flags.

What is the different with cpp program, which I cant compile

How to configure eclipse with icc


I'm using Ubuntu14.04,

I want to configure eclipse to work with icc (instead of gcc).

I follow:

But it was very unclear.

Pls help and write the steps to configure icc with eclise.

(icc is location is under: home/MY_USER/intel/bin)


Feature request: improve error messages: Option cannot change across modules: 0

2>  Option cannot change across modules: 0
2>xilink: : error #10014: problem during multi-file optimization compilation (code 1)
2>xilink: : error #10014: problem during multi-file optimization compilation (code 1)

This error message is not meaningful, nor useful.

The problem is when I link statically *.lib that was compiled with offload constructs set to "None" and *.exe was compiled with "Optional".

xilink.exe crashes and MSVS reports error code -1073740777

I was trying to offload some computation to GFX, and process "xilink.exe" crashes and output in visual studio says:

2>xilink: : error #10014: problem during multi-file optimization compilation (code -1073740777)
2>xilink: : error #10014: problem during multi-file optimization compilation (code -1073740777)

I thought we are in 21st century, so cryptic error codes were so popular in early 90's...

tqli hangs on i7-4790


i am using the routine tqli from the book Numerical Recipes ( since several years without any problems on different processors and different compilers. I have a new computer with i7-4790K.

Now this routine hangs somtimes. With same input values sometime it works and sometimes it hangs in an infinite loop.(the while lopp nerver ends)

The code is compiled with intel c++ compiler v14 but it also happens with the newest v15.

Compiler error assertion failed at: "shared/cfe/edgcpfe/lower_init.c" on debian jessie


I installed parallel_studio_xe_2015_update3 on my debian jessie on linux, and when i'm trying to compile the code I'm working on with icpc, there is this strange error :

/usr/include/c++/4.9/sstream(564): internal error: assertion failed at: "shared/cfe/edgcpfe/lower_init.c", line 5243


with no links to my code or anything else.

What did I missed?

kernel version 3.16.0-4-amd64


g++ 4.9.2 also installed (no issues with this compiler)
