Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2018: Getting Started with the Intel® Fortran Compiler 18.0 for macOS*

The Intel® Fortran Compiler compiles Fortran source files for Intel® 64 architecture.

Start using the compiler from the command line or within Xcode*.

Prerequisites

Before you can use this tool, you must first set the environment variables by sourcing the environment script using the initialization utility to initialize all the tools in one step:

  1. From a terminal session, run:

    source <install_dir>/bin/compilervars.sh <arg>

    where <install_dir> is the directory structure containing the compiler /bin directory, and <arg> is one of the following architecture arguments:

    • intel64: Compilers and libraries for Intel® 64 architecture only

    • ia32: Compilers and libraries for IA-32 architecture only

    The default path for <install_dir> is /opt/intel/

Using the Command Line

To invoke the compiler from the command line, use a command similar to the following:

ifort my_source_file.f90

Following successful compilation, the compiler creates an executable file in the current directory.

Start from Xcode*

You must first create or choose an existing Xcode* project. These instructions assume you are using an existing project.

  1. Select the target you want to change and click Build Rules.

  2. Add a new rule by clicking a + button or using Editor > Add Build Rule.

  3. Under Process, select Fortran source files.

  4. Under Using, select Intel® Fortran Compiler 18.0.

  5. Select the target to be built in the project editor under Targets.

  6. Select Product > Build.
