Language-specific Usage Options

The Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) provides broad support for Fortran and C/C++ programming. However, not all functions support both Fortran and C interfaces. For example, some LAPACK functions have no C interface. You can call such functions from C using mixed-language programming.

If you want to use LAPACK or BLAS functions that support Fortran 77 in the Fortran 95 environment, additional effort may be initially required to build compiler-specific interface libraries and modules from the source code provided with Intel MKL.
