Description

Majority of the code is borrowed from the Microsoft R Open Rprofile.site file. In case MKL can be detected this information will be stored in a separate envrionment, which other function know about. If so, an optimized version of function getGB will be used which used ordinary matrix-objects instead of matrices defined by the Matrix-package. This seems to accelerate computation time for large datasets by up to factor 30.

Usage

1

Details

This function is for internal use only and therefore not exported.

Value

variable 'MKL' in envir "msgEnv" will be set to TRUE/FALSE
