Hello Everybody,

I'm trying to install Intel Fortran Compiler 9.1.036 on my Debian AMD64
Opteron Box. Unfortunely, i can't use gnu fortran to compile the
application i want (http://www.cpmd.org/), because  it needs the 'Cray
Pointer' extension to Fortran 77 for dynamical memory management.
doesn't handle the above extension. So I have to use Intel's
compiler, that
is free of charge, but not open source :-( .
The latest GNU gFortran has the extensions you need and will produce a
64-bit native executable optimised for an AMD processor, rather than
one optimised for an inferior brand of 32-bit processor.

You should *never* install *any* software which does not come with
source code -- you don't know where it's been.  If the software vendor
isn't prepared to show you the source code, that's a clear sign that
there is something in there that they don't want you to see.

You wouldn't buy a cake that didn't have a list of ingredients on the
box, would you?
I drink a whole lot o' booze, and that never has an ingredients list

Hmmm... Well, here in the US the alcohol per cent by volume is listed,
but, yes, the other ingredients, eg.: hops, barley, wheat, etc., are not.

IFort 9.1

ELF 32-bit LSB executable (70% by volume)
