Incorrect loop iteration behavior in ifx compared to ifort

Hello!

I am currently learning Fortran for Project Euler (ignore the quality of the code you'll about to see) and as such I have chosen Intel Fortran. I attached the code, as well as the CMakeLists.txt I used.

 

When I use ifort and gfortran, I get the right answer: 142913828922
But when I use ifx, the answer is... 0. It is displaying the `sum` variable, which was initialized with 2, so it's even more of a mystery.

 

I am considering this a bug in the compiler, and my theory is that the compiler optimized way too much of the loop, and I don't know why ifx in particular doesn't work, while ifort and gfortran do. I haven't (to my knowledge) enabled any optimizations and the same exact code works on other compilers.

 

System and compiler:

The program is missing a "mod" call:

is_prime = .not. btest(prime((x-1)/64 + 1), x / 2)

=>

is_prime = .not. btest(prime((x-1)/64 + 1), mod(x / 2,32))


The btest call must have a bit-index that is less than the integer bit-size. Otherwise the value is undefined. After adding the "mod" call the program can work correctly with ifx.

I just ran that in IFX on windows and it gives 142913828922 with /Od and /O1 but with /O2 it gives zero. Optimiser bug.
