-gcc folks.

Why not use clang then?
It offers many more nice features.

What's the Fortran front-end called for clang (or do you really think we are going to write Weather Forecasting codes in C :-) )

Kind regards,

it was certainly worth it.


since I see msan as a kind of valgrind replacement (similar functionality,
but ~10x the speed, partially at the cost of more difficult deployment), I
did a quick search in gcc bugzilla. 982 PRs mention valgrind, so such
functionality is clearly heavily used.


That would be interesting - valgrind is certainly impossible to use on our
Weather Forecasting code (far too large, as valgrind helpfully points out).
