Hello,

If you want to do the matrix-matrix multiply (GEMM):

C = alpha AB + beta C

where A B and C are matrices. With the reference BLAS A, B and C need all three to be complex or all double. Same thing for matrix-vector products.

If you really want B to be of type real while C and A are complex then you need the XBLAS, a reference implementation is given at:

http://crd.lbl.gov/~xiaoye/XBLAS/

The pitfall is that there is no optimized imlementation of the XBLAS so, although you will have the functionallity, the performance are likely to be poor.
