Introduction to FFTW

FFTW is a C subroutine library for computing the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) in one or more dimensions. The name, "FFTW," stands for "Fastest Fourier Transform in the West." FFTW was developed at MIT, which is in the east. DJBFFT is an alternative that claims to be faster.

Dependencies

Optional

Configuration Information

Some options that you may wish to pass to the configure script.

--enable-single: compile FFTW in single precision.
--enable-long-double: compile FFTW in long-double precision.
--enable-k7: enable AMD k7 optimizations, including 3dNow!
--enable-sse: enable SSE optimizations.
--enable-sse2: enable SSE2 optimizations.
--disable-fortran: don't include FORTRAN callable wrappers.
--enable-openmp: use OpenMP directives instead of a threads library.

Note

The default is to build a double precision library. Generally one would build fftw three times; add the --enable-single and --enable-long-double options to the configuration for subsequent builds. This will result in libfft3, libfftw3f, and libfftw3l for single, double, and long-double libraries.
