[Numpy-discussion] (2012) Accessing LAPACK and BLAS from the numpy C API

Hello,

In 2009 there was a thread in this mailing list concerning the access to 
BLAS from C extension modules.

If I have properly understood the thread:

http://mail.scipy.org/pipermail/numpy-discussion/2009-November/046567.html

the answer by then was that those functions were not exposed (only f2py 
functions).

I just wanted to know if the situation has changed since 2009 because it 
is not uncommon that to optimize some operations one has to sooner or 
later access BLAS functions that are already wrapped in numpy (either 
from ATLAS, from the Intel MKL, ...)

Thanks for your time,

Armando
