I'd like to ask about Intel Fortran Compiler 16 (Limited feature) - that is listed in available compilers in Xcode (my version is 6.2 which is supported by Intel Parallel Studio 2016 and OS X El Capitan). Why Limited version? what things are limited? I have run a very simple f.90 code and it has been built and run perfectly. Thanks.
It is called Limited because Apple does not provide us enough hooks in Xcode to fully support Fortran. In particular, it cannot recognize module dependencies. You can build simple programs and change compiler options. Your license type is not relevant here.
For example is this limited feature supports following requirements in order to compile a coarray :
1- Intel MPI runtime suite
2- Intel cluster Tooklit
The "limited feature" of Xcode support has nothing to do with coarrays. Intel Fortran doesn't support coarrays on OS X. As you probably found, Intel MPI isn't supported there either (which is why coarrays aren't supported.)
Yes, we support MPI and coarrays on Windows (and Linux). We no longer support Visual Studio 2008, but we supply a Fortran development environment based on VS2013. A separate install of VS2010, VS2012, VS2013 or VS2015 is also supported. (VS2010 will be dropped in our next major release.)
