The easiest way to make use of Intel compilers and MKL library is to add the following in your initialization files:
Bash users (so in .bashrc) add the following lines for compiler and MKL
. /opt/intel/bin/compilervars.sh intel64 . /opt/intel/mkl/bin/mklvars.sh intel64
and CSH users (in .cshrc)
source /opt/intel/bin/compilervars.sh intel64 source /opt/intel/mkl/bin/mklvars.sh intel64
Several versions of Intel compilers and MKL available. You can check for all the available versions by the following command
locate icc | more
It will create a large list and you can pick the version you are interested in using.
