Thread Safety in LAPACK, conversion to CLAPACK?

Postby bjjarm » Mon Nov 27, 2006 6:08 pm

Hi All,

I'm currently using the CLAPACK functions, and have been looking around for thread safe implementations of the functions, when I discovered that the new release of LAPACK (3.1) now has thread safe functions (aside from the 10 named functions). My question is, is there a plan to create a new version of CLAPACK based on the new 3.1 version? and if so, when would this become available. If this is not planned, does anyone have experience with converting code using f2c.h, and what implications might this have for thread safety once this is done? And how big of a pain is it to actually convert code using f2c.h?

Thanks in advance.

There is work going on on updating CLAPACK. It should correspond
to the latest release of LAPACK. And in addition, we'd like to make
it thread-safe. We're currently testing the code generated by f2c.
