PGI Frequently Asked Questions

Questions and answers to many common issues and concerns.

Most of the problems reported by users have been encountered and solved before, or reflect a common misconception. This page lists problems and questions we have run into with the PGI® products, along with suggested solutions or workarounds.

A word about coding programs in a portable manner: Programs last much longer than anyone plans, especially if they work well. So it's a good idea to write them in a fashion that makes them independent of the machine or the compiler company you currently use. Often the response to a user's problem is that they are not coding in a portable fashion, because what they have done performs differently on different machines. Changing code now to remove platform/compiler dependencies can pay off in the long run.
