LAPACK & BLAS precompiled binaries for Win32 platform
The source codes of lapack and blas packages are available from http://www.netlib.org/liblist.html.
Since no open source Fortran compiler is natively available for Win32
platform, the precompiled binaries of these two packages can be
as well. Unfortunately, there are some bugs in those lib files. When building any
C++ application in MSVC .NET against lapack.lib and blas.lib you can
several linking troubles. For this purpose appropriate makefiles in
source codes were changed and corresponding binary files were built
using Intel ® Fortran
compiler (ver 11.0):
*) Required libraries (DLLs as well as LIB files) are part of Intel ®
Fortran compiler distribution (30
day evaluation version is available).
- shared version (statically-linked, release): download
- shared version (dynamically-loaded, release): download *)
- shared version (statically-linked, debug): download
- shared version (dynamically-loaded, debug): download *)
- static version (no more available)
when linking your application against blas*.lib and lapack*.lib you'll be asked
to provide the following files: ifconsol.lib,
libifcoremt.lib, libifport.lib, libmmt.lib, libirc.lib, svml_disp.lib
For this reason I recommend
to use shared version. You'll avoid troubles with
distribution of several mandatory files.
If you want to build the
binaries on your own
- Download the original lapack
as well as a patched tar-gzipped lapack/blas directory structure lapack-3.2.1-win32-patch.tgz.
- Unpack it in the same directory (source codes the first).
- Change the file make.inc
to fit your PC configuration.
- Type nmake in
the command line.
LAPACK & BLAS header files for C/C++
The source codes of lapack and blas were simply submitted to f2c program in order to obtain
the prototype for each lapack/blas function. You can either create the
header files in the same way on your own or use ours:
It is good to know that the header files are platform independent, i.e.
these can be used either in Windows (MSVC .NET) as well as in Linux
(GNU C/C++) without any further modification.
