I am migrating from IMSL to MKL. I am trying to implement matrix-matrix and matrix-vector calculations using the BLAS.
I have a doubt about what the following statements mean:
use mkl95_precision, only: wp => dpimplicit none
real(wp):: alpha, beta; !just an example of variables;
It seems that alpha and beta are double precision variables. There is any difference between the above statement and the following declaration? Which one should I use?
double precision alpha, beta;
Thank you in advance
