use mkl95_precision, only: wp => dp

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 => dp

implicit 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

Marcio Yamamoto
