What is the calling convetion for i_malloc and friends on 32bit Windows

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am trying to redefine memory allocation functions for MKL by using function pointer i_malloc and friends as described in https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/528395. On 32bit Windows however I am facing a problem: I could not figure out what is the calling convention for those functions? Is it __cdecl, __stdcall, __fastcall? The i_malloc.h header just says

typedef void * (* i_malloc_t)(size_t size);

But depending on whether I set -Gz for compilation or not this may change the calling convention on this function. Am I missing something here or should the header explicitly specify the calling convention?

Anyway, what actually is the calling convention that MKL assumes for these functions?

Thanks,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Right, everything in MKL is called using __cdecl convention.

On Win32 there is support for ancient Compaq Visual Fortran (CVF) interface (by linking user app in CVF with mkl_intel_s.lib) which is __stdcall.

Seems like there is some evidence that the expected calling convention is __cdecl: Compiling with -Gz (which implies __stdcall) my application crashes in mkl_serv_allocate(). Compiling without -Gz (which implies __cdecl, I think) everything works fine.

Can someone confirm that the functions should be __cdecl?
