Intro BLAS Man Pages
Having done a good deal of programming using the BLAS1
numerical linear algebra subroutines (via. incorporating calls to
them in my own programs). I felt it would be helpful to have a
nice man page describing a good number of the BLAS features. In
addition, it would be nice to have a good number of examples to
help new users get started using the blas libraries. Since, there
seemed to be no readily available online (i.e. man page) reference
that gave a high level overview of the available functions with
examples I had to write one.
I did this in the hopes that it would be helpful to the larger
numerical analysis software community in quickly allowing
subroutine look up and inclusion of calls from the BLAS1 library
in other peoples codes.
Here is a man page for the
These are FORTRAN subroutines documented in full in the following
