Transitioning from IMSL to Intel MKL

Hi all,
I am trying to transition my code which utilizes IMSL to use MKL
I have this small doubt, as many might be aware, the following statements
COMMON /WORKSP/ RWKSP
REAL RWKSP(7000)
CALL IWKIN(7000)
in IMSL stands for changing the space allocation of data storage for numeric data in the common section.
Is there a an equivalent of this in MKL?
I am not able to find any document covering this aspect of MKL.
Thanks

We dont use common sections as this is not thread safe and not used in MKL.

In cases if an additional memory required, MKL does safe allocations inside or a function call to MKL andhas a special parameter to provide a pointer to user allocated workspace. The parameters list is documented for each function with detailed description of workspace size if it is present.
