The original authors of BLAS and LAPACK have provided "reference
implementations" that are freely available but not very well
optimized. If your system has BLAS and LAPACK libraries in /usr/lib,
there's a good chance that these are the reference implementations.
Using them is a reasonable way to start, but you may well find that
you need faster routines to get acceptable performance.

CSDP also includes a set of routines for interfacing CSDP to MATLAB
and Octave. This interface is entirely optional- CSDP works fine
without it. In order to use this interface, you will need MATLAB (6.5
or later) or Octave (2.9.5 or later.) Note that earlier versions of
Octave, particularly 2.0 and 2.1, will not function with this interface
because Octave didn't support sparse matrices until version 2.9. The

This will run tests of the stand alone solver csdp and Lovasz theta

corresponding .correct files. The actual values will typically vary
because of small differences in floating point round-off, compiler
