Somehow I missed the announcement of the change. I can't find a way to turn off interface check, and it's an error, not a warning. One more reason why customers don't like new compilers. In this case it's a valid complaint, the code is wrong without -autodouble.
16.0.3 also requires -fno-inline-functions for this application, which doesn't appear to have been needed in 15.0 or 17.0 compilers. With default in-lining, this application will stop due to getting wrong array bounds passed in arguments if array bound checking is enabled with this compiler, but it's clean with the 15 and 17 compilers. Probably too complicated to dig into unless the code owner wants it.
hi Tim -
We did not turn on interface checking by default. It's possible we improved detection of an invalid interface if, as you say, it was a legitimate complaint.
If you would like us to look at the check:bounds + inlining problem, well, you know what to do :-)
It seems (not so surprising now that it's simplified) interface checking is mandatory in internal procedures:
real(real64) :: x ! or real*8 x
end subroutine sub
Apparently, people count on setting -autodouble or a synonym to make this valid.
Contained procedures have ALWAYS had interfaces checked, since this is an explicit interface. This is certainly NOT new behavior. Consider:
Intel(R) Visual Fortran Compiler XE for applications running on IA-32, Version 188.8.131.52 Build 20150407

t.f90(2): error #6633: The type of the actual argument differs from the type of
the dummy argument. [0.]
compilation aborted for t.f90 (code 1)
This is not -warn interface which deals with separately compiled procedures not in modules. If you use -autodouble it does compile.
So what exactly is the new behavior you're seeing?
