PSLDLT error
Running Fortran 90 code on SGI, I sometimes get the following message: PSLDLT Error: Index out of range (-1) and the program execution terminates. Can anyone familiar with this error explain me what is it? Thanks

Re: PSLDLT error
Thats simple. You probably have some arrays and you are exceeding the array limits, i.e., going below IMIN which is usually 1, or going above IMAX.

Re: PSLDLT error
Thanks, Praveen. That doesn't seem to be the problem because I am using dynamic memmory allocation for all the arrays and matrices. Or, you mean some other thing! -Malik

Re: PSLDLT error
Its not a problem with memory allocation. You are probably trying to access the array beyond its limits. This usually happens if you have some loop, look for things like

for i=1 to imax

and inside you might be trying to access array(i-1) or array(i+1)

Re: PSLDLT error
This can be quite a headache sometimes. If by mistake you try to access ARRAY(0) or ARRAY(imax+1) which are out of the range, then some compilers just dont give any warning. This is terrible because you wont even know that there is a mistake. I once discovered this problem while tring to run my code on SGI; it did not give any error on a linux pc. I think there are compilation flags which will check for array bounds. There is a flag -fbounds-check on g77. Check your man pages.
