 Dear all

 I am trying to optimize a huge code that uses boost multi-arrays. And when
 I compile the code with the ''-qopt-report=2 -qopt-report-phase=vec''
 options, I notice in the compilation report that most loops are not

 I thus made a simple program to understand why, and I noticed that a loop
 that uses C array is vectorized, while the same loop using boost multi
 array is not (see test_vector.cpp) (see attached .cpp file). I get the
 following message:

 LOOP BEGIN at test_vector.cpp(29,5)
    remark #15520: loop was not vectorized: loop with multiple exits cannot
 be vectorized unless it meets search loop idiom criteria

 A way to overcome this would be to use the data pointer in combination
 with the {{{#pragma ivdep}}} statement, but this becomes complicated when
 working on multimensional arrays.

 I thus would like to know if I am doing something wrong (for instance in
 the boost array initialisation), and if there is a way to fix this?

 I am using the icpc compiler, version 16.0.4, with boost library version
 1.65. The program is compiled as follows:

 icpc -Ilibs/cpp/boost_1_65_0/ -O3 -qopt-report=2 -qopt-report-phase=vec

 Thanks a lot
