Unhappy Compiling a code for a software tool for PFDTD processing

Hello, I am new to this network and to linux and have a question involving instructions I have received from a faculty member. I am trying to run a program to compile some GUI output files for PFDTD processing to create electromagnetic survey models. I created a symbolic link to a file subdiv.f90 which is a software tool for partitioning a Maxwell block into multiple blocks for parallel processing on multiple processors. I was told to use the command:

ifort -O2 subdiv.90

to compile it, and that I may have to use the module command:

module include intel-compilers-10.0.023

to compile the code. Neither have worked and I am wondering if anyone knows of an alternative compiler command that I might try. Any feedback is much appreciated.

You need to be explicit when you say "Neither have worked". What happened? Were there any error messages? Are you sure that it wasn't "module load ...", as opposed to "module include ..."? You might want to try "module avail" to give you a list of modules that you can load. I'm making assumptions here that your "module" software is the same as ours, which may not be true. Try it and see if it works. Other compilers you may want to try are the GNU one (gfortran) and the PGI one (pgif90), though obviously I don't know what's available on your systems.

Edit: you might want to check the man (manual) page for "module" to see how to use it: man module.
