I am investigating using ScaLapack/PBLAS for a molecular modelling code in C++ that I am working on. I have access to the MKL on the cluster computers that I work with, but I would also like to be able to use ScaLapack on my desktop to test the code in development and also run small calculations.
I downloaded the trial version C++ compiler to test how it would work with my code, but it does not seem to include ScaLapack. The main point that I am currently stuck on is how to link in the BLACS functions needed to initialise a program to use PBLAS and ScaLapack. Does ScaLapack only come with the Cluster Studio version of the MKL, or is there something that I am missing in linking in the correct libraries?
no, ScaLapack available even is standalone version of MKL. the cause of the problem you don't see the ScaLapack libs, as I guess, is the Install Option introduced since 11.1 version of MKL. Please see more details into this article : http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intelr-mkl-new-install-option. I hope this will help you.
