I downloaded the MKL package from this link https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/free_mkl and installed it successfully. Now, I would like to run some examples included in the folder /mkl/examples but obviously I need the ifort compiler. I guess that the ifort compiler is included in some of the folders within the main folder, but I don't know how to set the environment variables for ifort in the .bashrc file. I added the following lines
# add the intel compilers to the PATH
# add MKL and the compiler libs to the path
and updated the file, but, when I use the ifort command in the terminal I still get
ifort: command not found
Am I missing something? I will really appreciate if someone could give me some insight on the problem at hand. Thank you in advance for your help.
No compilers are provided in that free libraries package. It is libraries only and assumes you already have a compiler.
If you are a student or open-source developer you may qualify for a free compiler license. See https://software.intel.com/en-us/qualify-for-free-software
