I do a dll with my visual studio project.
Do you mean to say that you're creating a dll project in Visual Studio? (Note that compiling the GotoBLAS2 dll in MSYS is a different issue and must not be confused.)
If you are creating a dll project in Visual Studio, you may want to first try a writing small console application in order to test your GotoBLAS2 build.
Try the sample program here http://www.cs.rochester.edu/~bh/cs400/using_lapack.html
If you've (saved your file as *.cpp and are) compiling with C++, rename the prototypes
void dgesv_( )
void dgels_( )
in the above program to
extern "C" void dgesv_( )
extern "C" void dgels_( )
and don't forget to use the "Multithreaded-Debug (/MTd)" runtime library.Josselin wrote:I use /MTd or MT but it doesn t work.
What exactly do you mean? What errors are you getting?
If you are creating a dll in visual studio, use the Multi-threaded Debug DLL (/MDd) runtime library.
I've got two visual studio projects in my solution file, both using LAPACK. The first one is a console application and therefore uses the "Multithreaded-Debug (/MTd)" runtime library while the second is dll (AutoDesk Maya Plugin) and therefore uses the Multi-threaded Debug DLL (/MDd) runtime library. Why? because dlls and console applications (debug or release) cannot link against the same version of the C or C++ runtime library.

Did you use the BLAS subroutines SGEMV and DGEMV (GotoBLAS implements both). They should outperform Matlab by many orders of magnitude. I would be very surprised if they didn't.
A1(i, j) = 0;
A2(i, j) = 0;
AN(i,j) = 0;
A1(i, j) = A1(i, j) + B1(i,k)*C1(k,i);
A2(i, j) = A2(i, j) + B2(i,k)*C2(k,i);
AN(i, j) = AN(i, j) + BN(i,k)*CN(k,i);
Do the routines dgemv and dgemm run in parallel? If they are not, how different is it running the BLAS routine to coding my own loops in C to make the multiplication?
