Project Description

The BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms) are routines that provide standard building blocks for performing basic vector and matrix operations. The Level 1 BLAS perform scalar, vector and vector-vector operations, the Level 2 BLAS perform matrix-vector operations, and the Level 3 BLAS perform matrix-matrix operations. Because the BLAS are efficient, portable, and widely available, they are commonly used in the development of high quality linear algebra software, LAPACK for example.

Download, extract all files to a folder, open blas.xll.
Select a cell containing a BLAS function, start the Function Wizard, and click on Help on this function to see the documentation.

If you are using Vista or Windows 7 you may need to right click on blas.chm, choose Properties, and Unblock this file.
