Specifying Function Names

In the file with the list of functions for your custom
dynamically linked shared library
, adjust function names to the required interface. For example,
for Fortran functions append an underscore character "_" to the names as a suffix:
dgemm_
ddot_
dgetrf_
For more examples, see domain-specific lists of function
s
in the
<mkl directory>
/
tools
/
builder
folder.
The lists of function
s
are provided in the
<mkl directory>
/
tools
/
builder
folder merely as examples. See Composing a List of Functions for how to compose lists of functions for your custom
dynamically linked shared library
.
Names of Fortran-style routines (BLAS, LAPACK, etc.) can be both upper-case or lower-case, with or without the trailing underscore. For example, these names are equivalent:
BLAS:
dgemm
,
DGEMM
,
dgemm_
,
DGEMM_
LAPACK:
dgetrf
,
DGETRF
,
dgetrf_
,
DGETRF_.
Properly capitalize names of C support functions in the function list. To do this, follow the guidelines below:
  1. In the
    mkl_service.h
    include file, look up a
    #define
    directive for your function
    (
    mkl_service.h
    is included in the
    mkl.h
    header file).
  2. Take the function name from the replacement part of that directive.
For example, the
#define
directive for the
mkl_disable_fast_mm
function is
#define mkl_disable_fast_mm MKL_Disable_Fast_MM
.
Capitalize the name of this function in the list like this:
MKL_Disable_Fast_MM
.
For the names of the Fortran support functions, see the tip.
If selected functions have several processor-specific versions, the builder automatically includes them all in the custom library and the dispatcher manages them.
