mkl fft3w choosing PRECISION SINGLE OR DOUBLE

Hi,

I have installed Intel Composer XE 14.0.2.144.

I can compile fft2w 'single' precision version and 'double' precision version adding  a  compilation parameter:

[PRECISION={MKL_DOUBLE|MKL_SINGLE}]

I do not known how to do the same in fftw3. The make command does not show me this option.

So I do not known how to compile my apps in single or double precision linking mkl fftw3 libraries.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, Martin! FFTW3 interface are compiled for both precision at once. Just use fftw_* for double precision or fftwf_* for single precision in your application. Also, please note, that MKL has built-in interface for FFTW3. You can just link your fftw3-application with MKL instead of FFTW3 and it should work (using MKL).

Great Evarist,

I saw that you say in the code file names in .../mkl/interfaces/fftw3xc/wrapper but I wasn't sure about this.

Now all be clear.

Thanks a lot.
