About hblas

hblas is an open source component of the Wellposed® mathematical software suite.

Members of the numerical haskell open source community can be found on irc at #numerical-haskell on freenode, and via the numericalhaskell mailing list.

Build Status

hblas is a self contained full (well, not quite yet) BLAS and LAPACK binding that provides the full BLAS and LAPACKE APIs in a simple, unopinionated, Haskell wrapper.

This library is NOT meant to be used by end users, it is designed to be an unopinionated, simple, portable, easy to install BLAS/LAPACK substrate for higher level numerical computing libraries to build upon. Morever, this library is strictly a wrapper, and simply makes using the functionality of BLAS and LAPACK more accessible.

This library is NOT meant to be used a standalone array library (except in desperation), but rather should be used by a higher level numerical array library to provide high performance linear algebra routines.

how to install

sudo apt-get install libblas liblapack

is all you should have to do before hand
