Dear BLACS developers,
I have been using MPI BLACS 1.1p3 together with ScaLAPACK 1.7.4
on several MPI-based computing environments. First of all, thank you
for providing these valuable pieces of software.
I am writing this to let you know a problem I found in
BLACS/INSTALL/Makefile that the "clean" target (i.e. make clean)
does not remove a symbolic link to mpif.h.
I use several pairs of compilers and MPI libraries with which I build
BLACS from the same source tree. After I build EXE/xfmpi_sane with
an MPI library for example, a symbolic link to mpif.h in the library is
made in the INSTALL directory. The link will be left undeleted even after
I do "make clean" and switch to another MPI library, making the results
of MPI-related tests really confusing.
I hope this problem will be fixed in a future release of BLACS, which
helps the new users of BLACS a lot.
KAJIYAMA, Tamito <kajiyama@Domain.Removed>
