Hi!

I'm installing the stable version of ATLAS (3.6.0) and
I'm following the

doc/TestTime.txt

document basically to time my system. Two minor
comments:

1) Right now, the system do not have another BLAS
library installed, so I followed the
"
5. TESTING _WITHOUT_ A BLAS LIBRARY
"
part of the document. The line numbers in (from
doc/TestTime.xt)
"
Then, edit ATLAS/bin/l3blastst.c, and change line
75 from:
#define USE_F77_BLAS
to:
#define USE_L3_REFERENCE

Edit ATLAS/bin/l2blastst.c and change line 44 from:
#define USE_F77_BLAS
to:
#define USE_L2_REFERENCE
"
are a little bit different on the referenced files.
The current line numbers (to be changed) are 87 on
l3blastst.c and 56 on l2blastst.c. Also, given that
there is just one of that "#define line" on each file
may be a good idea indicating to change it without
making reference to the line number (in order to avoid
changing the documentation each time you change
the source code files).

2) I think it is a good idea to indicate on
"
6. THE ATLAS LEVEL 3 TIMER/TESTER PROGRAMS
"

that making the testers should be made in directory

ATLAS/bin/<arch>

Hope this helps,

Fernando.
