Yesterday, Ive installed Intel Fortran compiler on my PC with Windows Xp.
Ive upgraded my CVF 6.1 to Intel, because Ive upgrade my developer platform to .NET
Ive noted that respect to the past nothing was change and this is not always a good thing.
First, I see that Steve Lionel is still here, after many years, to answer to our questions and this is a very good thing for me.
Second I see that Intel compiler under .NET platform works for Windows interfaces (dialog, with button ad so on) works in the same way of CVF 6.0, and this is not a good thing; because now Microsoft make possible to C compiler to produce .Net executable working in the same way of Visual Basic. Is possible (is an expensive effort on a dialog form) directly from developer environment have directly defined the callback for the event, and all other items available with VB.
Instead Fortran contiinue to need the work of people that write external libray.
I hope in future Fortran will be really integrated, like VB and C, in .NET platform
The last item Ive noted, is that on installation CD are not many samples.
Have I missed anything or the situation is these?
Bye and good work to all
Dear Steve, thank you for your answer.
A part of my message was focused on a integration of Intel compiler in .NET platform (like VB and VC). Do you knoe or think that in future Intel Fortran compiler will integrate in the same way? Coub be a goal of Intel or is not importan for you?
