ViennaCL as BLAS?

    Hi all,

    I'm the author of and I'd really like to see if it's possible to use vienna as a BLAS backend… do you think that's possible?

    Initially, I'd be looking to be able to compile ViennaCL on OS X and run the three speed tests that I'm using to compare the other libs. That requires, at least:

    • ddot
    • dgemm
    • dgetrf
    • dgetri

    plus whatever sub-routines they use.

    I'd probably be happy enough with just dgemm initially to get a feel for things.

    good news: a BLAS interface is about to be completed for the 1.5.0 release. Have a look at the developer repository at github, folder libviennacl/
    Best regards,
