Naming Conventions for Sparse BLAS Routines

Similar to BLAS, the names of Sparse BLAS subprograms have prefixes that determine the data type involved:
s
and
d
for single- and double-precision real;
c
and
z
for single- and double-precision complex respectively.
If a Sparse BLAS routine is an extension of a "dense" one, the subprogram name is formed by appending the suffix
i
(standing for
indexed
) to the name of the corresponding "dense" subprogram. For example, the Sparse BLAS routine
saxpyi
corresponds to the BLAS routine
saxpy
, and the Sparse BLAS function
cdotci
corresponds to the BLAS function
cdotc
.

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reservered for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
