Summary0000098: Compilation fails with Intel C++ Composer 2011 (ICC 12)
DescriptionThe compilation process fails when trying to compile OpenFOAM main library on a platform with gcc 4.5.x (See

The following option is required to avoid the problem:


Additionally, the option


is deprecated, and should be replaced with


with Icc coming with Intel C++ Composer 2011 to avoid warnings.

This fix allows compilation to proceed. However a lot of warnings are caused bypTraits.H (they all refer to it). An example of warning message is:

/home/alberto/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.x/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/pTraits.H(71): warning #597: "Foam::pTraits<PrimitiveType>::operator Foam::symmTensor() const [with PrimitiveType=Foam::symmTensor]" will not be called for implicit or explicit conversions

Are the options


Supported by older versions of Icc?

The two options are supported at least by Intel compiler 11.1. This version already deprecated -xT, suggesting -xSSE3 instead on Linux systems ( ).

The option -std=c++0x is required only on Linux systems with gcc 4.5.x or newer, and it is supported by Intel compiler 11.1 ( ) at least, but the level of implementation of the new standard might vary. Older Intel compilers than 12 are reported not to work on systems with gcc 4.5.x ( I did not test myself, but it is reported on Intel forums).
