How to have multiple definitions of a subroutine in Intel Fortran

How can I use a static library in a Intel Fortran Project and at the same time, include some of the library subroutines in other parts of the project with some changes? In other words, in the case that I have two definitions of the same subroutine, How can I ask the program to use the subroutine that is included in the project rather than the same subroutine in the library?

Hello, sn1fflez,

You may find better response if you post your question in an Intel Fortran forum.  For example: http://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-visual-fortran-compiler-for-windows/

But if you are using something like:


to indicate that the routine should come from an external library, then omitting that line should allow the local version of the routine will be used.  (But the concept of having multiple routines of the same name is liable to be confusing to the poor maintenance programmer who follows you.  I would think carefully if there isn't a better way to do what you want, and if you do proceed, document what you are doing very explicitly.)

Possibly the one which is going to be used is be the one that appears first (either as object file or as static library) on the linker commnad line, provided that the linker does not complain, but I fully agree with the previous comment that this is a dangerous practise.
