Hello,

I am trying to compile abinit-8.10 https://www.abinit.org/ using Intel® Parallel Studio XE Composer Edition for Fortran Linux update 4 - 2018. However, I am getting this error : 

"Checking whether the Fortran compiler provides the iso_c_binding module... configure: error: Fortran compiler does not provide iso_c_binding module. Use a more recent version or a different compiler"

 

Can you please help me to fix this problem ?
 

Regards

Yes, the module is in that update. Perhaps you accidentally deleted it? Uninstall and reinstall the compiler and it should come back.

Yes, that module has been provided for many years. You should check that the INCLUDE environment variable is properly set. It is also possible that the script that gives that error is testing incorrectly.

But this module is not provided in the release ; "Intel® Parallel Studio XE Composer Edition for Fortran Linux 2018 (update 4)".

While it is already exist the release : 2017 (update 8).

I cannot reproduce this. Configure runs without failure with ifort v18 Update 4.
