Just finished compiling some numerical code (developed using the
Borland C++ compiler) using G++ 4.3.4 (that came with Cygwin 1.7).
The answers are different from what I get using the Borland compiler
(circa 2002). I have known correct answers from some NASA code and
compare against those.
I've transitioned of late to Code::Blocks using the latest MinGW.
MinGW comes with G++ 4.5.2. I compiled using this compiler and it
once again it works (I get the same answers as the NASA code).
Are there known problems with G++ 4.3.4?
BTW, the original code was infinite looping until I replaced the old style:
for (i=0; i<WHATEVER; i++) ..
with i declared within the routine (i.e., function) with:
for (int i=0; i<WHATEVER; i++) ...
