MKL Vector Statistical Library (VSL)

I was using Intel’s Math Kernel Library Link Line advisor ( http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-mkl-link-line-advisor/ ), and I noticed that the Notes at the bottom told me that “PGI Fortran support on Windows is limited. PGI Fortran is not supported by VML/VSL.”

  1. Can I get the short explanation for why these libraries can’t be used in Windows? (Do I get to blame Intel or Windows for this?)
  2. Does PGI plan to support VML/VSL on Windows in the future?

Thanks!

Supporting information:

  1. The options I used for the advisor were: Intel MKL 10.3, Windows OS, Intel 64 processor, PGI Fortran Compiler, Static Linking, LP64 interface, and sequential threading.
  2. I use Window 7 64 bit and PGI Visual Fortran.

Hi Charlotte,

  1. Can I get the short explanation for why these libraries can’t be used in Windows? (Do I get to blame Intel or Windows for this?)

MKL is an Intel product so the question is probably best directed towards them. It appears that they do support PGI Fortran compiler on Windows, with the exceptions of a few features. Though, I don’t the reason for this limited support.
