LANL POP has been successfully run on a single-processor Intel PC with Windows NT. POP was built with Digital Visual Fortran 5.0 as a Win32 console application (meaning you run it with a command line in a DOS window). The make system used for other platforms was not used on the PC. Instead, a standard Visual Studio project was created.
Source files added to the project were
In addition to the defaults, these Fortran preprocessor
options '/fpp' was needed.
To enable POP to run the test problem without stack overflow,
reserve stack memory was set to 64 MB. A lower
value may be possible, but 48 MB was not enough.
The debug version required the link option: /nodefaultlib:libc.
The release version (optimized) ran the test problem in about
four minutes (262 seconds) on a 450 MHz, 256 MB
Pentium II PC.
