This Users' Guide gives an informal introduction to the design of the package, and a detailed description of its contents. Chapter 5 explains the conventions used in the software and documentation. Part 2 contains complete specifications of all the driver routines and computational routines. These specifications have been derived from the leading comments in the source text.
On-line manpages (troff files) for LAPACK routines, as well as for most of the BLAS routines, are available on netlib. These files are automatically generated at the time of each release. For more information, see the manpages.tar.z entry on the lapack index on netlib.
