Fortran RunTime Libraries

I'm looking to get a hold of the Fortran runtime libraries.

I have access to the gfortran compiler, but the libraries are not necessarily available.  Are the runtime libraries available on their own?  Or are they apart of some larger software package?

I tried to call to get this information, but was direct to post here so I hope I'm in the right place.

 

Thank you!

You want the gfortran libraries? This is not the right place. gfortran is part of gcc.

The Intel Fortran libraries are available here, but can't be used with gfortran.

Christine, please provide more details regarding the "Fortran runtime libraries" that you want. Runtime libraries (RTLs) are specific to individual Fortran compilers, and they are not interchangeable.

One scenario in which you would need the Intel RTL on a standalone basis is when a colleague or contact gives you an executable built with Intel Fortran, and you wish to run that executable without having Intel Fortran installed on your computer.

I'm specifically looking for the MKL Lapack95 and Blas95 libraries.

You will need to obtain and install the MKL development package for building applications: https://software.seek.intel.com/performance-libraries . For finding the options to use with gFortran, please use the MKL Link Line Advisor at https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-mkl-link-line-advisor .
