MacOS + MKL (BLAS) segmentation fault using debug flags

I have narrowed down an issue when compiling a simple HelloWorld code using debug flags (`-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug`) on MacOS (11.0.1 with XCode 11.7 and Parallel Studio Xe 19.1.2.258 20200623 or XCode 12.2 and OneApi 2021.1.1). I have uploaded my MWE of this issue, and I wish to confirm if it's not miss-configuration on my part.

#include <iostream>
#include <mkl.h>

int main() {
	double M[10] = {};
	double X[4] = {};
	double Y[4] = {};
	std::cout << "Trying BLAS operation:" << std::endl;
//	for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
		cblas_dspmv(CblasColMajor, CblasUpper, 4,
		            1.0f, M, X, 1, 0.0f, Y, 1);
	std::cout << "Success" << std::endl;
	return 0;
}



PS: I had a similar issue on Linux, but I cannot currently reproduce it.

I have found the porblem, and indeed it was a configuration error.

I was compiling and linking with `ilp64` while still using default `int` parameters. After switching to `lp64` everything works perfectly fine.

I should add the Segmentation fault error I get is `EXC_BAD_ACCESS (code=EXC_I386_GPFLT)` in the BLAS function, and when the debug mode is turned off the programm runs normally with appropriate results.

As your issue is related to MKL and we have a dedicated forum for MKL related issues. So we are redirecting your thread to MKL Forum for faster response.

Of course, go ahead and close it. Maybe someone in the same situation as me will find this post by accident when needed.
