RE: gfortran, lapack, and cygwin [SOLVED]

Thanks everyone for replying. The liblapack-devel was definitely key and
worked perfectly! Yay lapack!


P.S. I will remember that naming tidbit in the future, David. I forgot that
tool existed.

You need to install the development library liblapack-devel. This 
provides /usr/lib/liblapack.dll.a and /usr/lib/libblas.dll.a, which are 
required to link applications that use the dynamic libraries 
cyglapack.dll and cygblas.dll.

It also provides /usr/lib/liblapack.a and /usr/lib/libblas.a, which are 
used if you link statically.

You need to link the BLAS routines by adding -lblas AFTER -llapack
	gfortran mytest.f90 -o mytest -llapack -lblas


PS:  Bad practice to name a binary "test" on cygwin or any unix system, 
as there is a utility and also a bash builtin function with this name.
