Availability of LAPACK / External Libraries?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

Is the LAPACK library available for use on BB10 please?

 

Is there a list of 'standard' libraries such as these for BB10 please?

 

Thanks in advance,

Tom

Did you take a look at the BlackBerry github? https://github.com/blackberry

 

Maybe you will find something interesting there.

Re: Availability of LAPACK / External Libraries?

Thanks very much - I hadn't thought of looking there.

 

I think LAPACK was required for pre-OpenCV 2.3 but it looks like the version in the repository (OpenCV 2.3) is the first not to use it (it has it's own SVD method instead).

 

I guess Plan B is to try and compile from source (FORTRAN) I think that needs BLAS and glibfortran libraries so I'll have to look for instructions on how to cross-compile these and put onto system.

Just to close this thread - I've now opted for Eigen because:

 

i) it has the functions I'm after (all I had to do was swap out the LAPACK routines);

ii) seems just as fast / faster (no data on this though);

iii) it compiles into the executable so does not require additional libraries :smileyvery-happy:

 

Thanks,

Tom
