When an IVF console project ends in Microsoft Visual Studio, the window automatically closes so that one cannot examine the output unless one uses say a "read *" statement at the end of the main program. This occurs even though the option "Automatically close the console when debugging stops" is unchecked under Options -> Debugging -> General. When working with C++ projects, Microsoft Visual Studio does enforce this option and by default, the window remains open. Is there another setting that is causing the console to automatically close with IVF projects?
Another option is shown here. If you're debugging, you can set a breakpoint on the last statement.
I had never before seen the option you refer to, and you're right that Fortran projects don't honor it. I would have expected that to be a general VS thing not under Intel's control. It would be great if you'd file an issue with the Intel Online Service Center complaining about this.
This is not an issue. A GUI application (one with only dialogs) also closes all windows upon exit. A window is a window be it dialog or "text box" occupying entire frame.
I don't agree, Jim. VS now has an option to keep the console window open at the end of a debug session, the way a non-debug session does. It doesn't work for Fortran programs.
