Re: Mail archives

Greetings, Clint!  OK, if you just replace the

static __inline__ void

with simply 


in each of the three include files 

maa.h dpa.h and ga.h

all should work!  Something is getting hosed when the dot product
function is inlined.  I may figure out a way to restore the inlining,
but it should be a trivial gain in any case.

Take care,
