/whetstone, Benchmark for processors that gives you a MIPS rating
1.2, Package name:
whetstone-1.2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users
Converted by Rich Painter, Painter Engineering, Inc. based on the
www.netlib.org benchmark/whetstoned version obtained 16 March 1998.
A novel approach was used here to keep the look and feel of the
FORTRAN version. Altering the FORTRAN-based array indices,
starting at element 1, to start at element 0 for C, would require
numerous changes, including decrementing the variable indices by 1.
Instead, the array E1 was declared 1 element larger in C. This
allows the FORTRAN index range to function without any literal or
variable indices changes. The array element E1 is simply never
used and does not alter the benchmark results.
