Shared Objects

shared objects
reduce the collection of functions available in
Intel® MKL
libraries to those required to solve your particular problems, which helps to save disk space and build your own dynamic libraries for distribution.
Intel® MKL
shared object
builder enables you to create a dynamic library
(shared object)
containing the selected functions and located in the
directory. The builder contains a makefile and a definition file with the list of functions.
The objects in
Intel® MKL
static libraries are position-independent code (PIC), which is not typical for static libraries. Therefore, the custom shared object builder can create a shared object from a subset of
Intel® MKL
functions by picking the respective object files from the static libraries.

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.
