|Description:||Portable optimal linear algebra software (3.10.1-1)|
The current version provides a complete BLAS and LAPACK API. For many operations, ATLAS achieves performance on par with machine-specific tuned libraries. Installs also LAPACK's docs and manpages. Headers: cblas.h clapack.h, plus the atlas headers Libraries installed: lib(pt)lapack.a : The LAPACK routines provided by ATLAS, plus the rest of LAPACK from netlib.org. lib(pt)cblas.a : The ANSI C interface to the BLAS. lib(pt)f77blas.a : The Fortran77 interface to the BLAS. libatlas.a : The main ATLAS library, providing low-level routines for all interface libs. On monoprocessor machines, the "threaded" versions (those with "pt" in parentheses) are just symlinks to the unthreaded ones. The main use of the serial interface is for parallel packages that handle the parallelism on their own, and need serial blas/lapack. The corresponding dylibs are also installed.
Order is important when linking! Use: -L/sw/lib -lptlapack -lptcblas -lptf77blas -latlas or -L/sw/lib -ltatlas (or the analogue without "pt" in pkgs that handle parallelism on their own). Also decide carefully whether you want to link to static or to shared libs.
