Using Code Examples

Intel® MKL
package includes code examples, located in the
subdirectory of the installation directory. Use the examples to determine:
  • Whether
    Intel® MKL
    is working on your system
  • How you should call the library
  • How to link the library
If an
Intel® MKL
component that you selected during installation includes code examples, these examples are provided in a separate archive. Extract the examples from the archives before use.
For each component, the
examples are grouped in subdirectories mainly by
Intel® MKL
function domains and programming languages. For instance, the
(extracted from the
contains a makefile to build the BLAS examples and the
subdirectory contains the makefile to build the C examples for Vector Mathematics functions. Source code for the examples is in the next-level

Product and Performance Information


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 reserved 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.
