+% function benchmark_dtmm (m, n, nvec)
+% description:
+% Dense transposed matrix-matrix and matrix-vector multiplication benchmark.
+% This is to test the "compound operators" feature introduced in Octave.
+%
+% arguments:
+% m = row dimension of matrices
+% n = col dimension of matrices
+% nvec = number of vector op repeats
+%
+% results:
+% time_tmm = Time for A'*B (A,B m-by-n matrices)
+% time_smm = Time for A'*A
+% time_mtm = Time for A*B' (A,B n-by-m matrices)
+% time_msm = Time for A*A'
+% time_tmv = Time for A'*v nvec-times (A m-by-n matrix)
+% time_mtv = Time for v*A' nvec-times (A m-by-n matrix)
