## Binary package “libblas-test” in bilimbitest angry

# Basic Linear Algebra Subroutines 3, testing programs

This package is a binary incompatible upgrade to the blas-test

package. Several minor changes to the C interface have been

incorporated. One can maintain both versions on a system

simultaneously to aid in the transition.

.

BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subroutines) is a set of efficient

routines for most of the basic vector and matrix operations.

They are widely used as the basis for other high quality linear

algebra software, for example lapack and linpack. This

implementation is the Fortran 77 reference implementation found

at netlib.

.

This package contains a set of programs which test the integrity

of an installed blas-compatible shared library. These programs

may therefore be used to test the libraries provided by the

blas package as well as those provided by the atlas packages.

The programs are dynamically linked -- one can explicitly select

a library to test by setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH or LD_PRELOAD

environment variables. Likewise, one can display the library

selected using the ldd program in an identical environment.
