Linking Quick Start

Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL)
provides several options for quick linking of your application
. The simplest options depend on your development environment:
Intel® Parallel Studio XE Composer Edition compiler
Microsoft Visual Studio* Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
Other options are independent of your development environment, but depend on the way you link:
Explicit dynamic linking
see Using the Single Dynamic Library for how to simplify your link line.
Explicitly listing libraries on your link line
see Selecting Libraries to Link with for a summary of the libraries.
Using pkg-config tool to get compilation and link lines
see Using pkg-config metadata filesfor a summary on how to use
Intel® MKL
pkg-config metadata files.
Using an interactive interface
see Using the Link-line Advisor to determine libraries and options to specify on your link or compilation line.
Using an internally provided tool
see Using the Command-line Link Tool to determine libraries, options, and environment variables or even compile and build your application.

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.
