Re: Installing Intel Fortran Compiler


Well, i really hope that some day gnu fortran can be as good as or even better than the others fortran compilers. I don't like closed source software and i think that the gnu c compiler is way better than any other C compiler. I'm a CS student and i don't love fortran. To me, it would really be great if all the researchers here in my college took some C lessons. But since I'm a employee, i'll have to install Intel Fortran.
For those interested, here:


Worked just fine. But if you can, stick to gfortran. Let's make this world a better place.

I drink a whole lot o' booze, and that never has an ingredients list
