MXM
MatrixMatrix Multiplication Timings
MXM
is a C program which
sets up a matrixmatrix multiplication problem A = B * C,
and carries it out using

Nested FOR I, J, K loops;

Nested FOR I, K, J loops;

Nested FOR J, I, K loops;

Nested FOR J, K, I loops;

Nested FOR K, I, J loops;

Nested FOR K, J, I loops;

the MATMUL FORTRAN90 intrinsic function;
The user is allowed to specify N1, N2, and N3, which define
the matrix sizes.
Usage:
mxm n1 n2 n3
where

n1 is the number of rows in B.

n2 is the number of columns in B and rows in C.

n3 is the number of columns in C;
