Our experience is they are robust and produce very fast code.

When we get 'internal compiler errors' - by deleting work.pc* and
recompiling
mostly cures the problem.

One other quirk is that using ifc to link produces large static binaries ,
but using icc uses dynamic linking. The static linking can easily be cured
(find ifc.cfg) but it is odd that the defaults are different?



Yours,
Daniel.
