cuda – Converting Octave to Use CuBLAS – Stack Overflow
I was able to produce a compiled executable using the information supplied. It’s a horrible hack, but it works. The process looks like this: First produce an object file for fortran_thunking.c sudo /usr/local/cuda-5.0/bin/nvcc -O3 -c -DCUBLAS_GFORTRAN fortran_thunking.c Then move that object file to the src subdirectory in octave cp /usr/local/cuda-5.0/src/fortran_thunking.o ./octave/src run make. The compile will fail on the last step. Change to the src directory. cd src Then execute the failing final line with the addition of ./fortran_thunking.o -lcudart -lcublas just after octave-main.o. This produces the following command g++ -I/usr/include/freetype2 -Wall -W -Wshadow -Wold-style-cast -Wformat -Wpointer-arith -Wwrite-strings -Wcast-align -Wcast-qual -I/usr/local/cuda/include -o .libs/octave octave-main.o ./fortran_thunking.o -lcudart -lcublas -L/usr/local/cuda/lib64 ../libgui/.libs/liboctgui.so ../libinterp/.libs/liboctinterp.so ../liboctave/.libs/
High-Precision Software Directory
This web site (see software package links below) contains the LBNL double-double precision, quad-double precision and arbitrary precision (also termed "multiprecision" or "multiple precision") software, which was written over a period of several years by David H. Bailey (LBNL), Yozo Hida (U.C. Berkeley), Xiaoye S. Li (LBNL) and Brandon Thompson (formerly of U.C. Berkeley, now at Cadence). Some additional application programs were provided by Karthik Jeyabalan (formerly at LBNL, now at Cornell), and some revised versions have been provided by Alex Kaiser (U.C. Berkeley).

Dongarra+Hinds: Unrolling Loops in FORTRAN
The technique of ‘unrolling’ to improve the performance of short program loops withoutresorting to assembly language coding is discussed. A comparison of the benefits of loop
‘unrolling‘ on a variety of computers using an assortment of FORTRAN compilers is
KEY WORDS Unrolled loops FORTRAN Loop efficiency Loop doubling
It is frequently observed that the bulk of the central processor time for a program is
localized in 3 per cent of the source code.6 Often the critical code from the timing perspective
consists of one (or a few) short inner loops typified, for instance, by the scalar product of
two vectors. A simple technique for the optimization of such loops, with consequent
improvement in overall execution time, should then be most welcome. ‘Loop unrolling’ (a
generalization of ‘loop d~ubling’),~ applied selectively to time-consuming loops, is just
such a technique.
