[SciPy-Dev] flapack and the GIL
Mon Feb 4 05:24:51 CST 2013
It seems arbitrary if the flapack f2py interfaces have a 'threadsafe'
statement or not. Why is that?
I'd assume the whole of BLAS/LAPACK would be reeantrant or not. And this
would possibly depend on the libraries itself, e.g. if they are compiled
to assume all local variables are 'STATIC' by default.
Which means that the right place to determine threadsafety of flapack
routines would be in the build process.
