NAME
clange.f -

SYNOPSIS
Functions/Subroutines
REAL function clange (NORM, M, N, A, LDA, WORK)
CLANGE returns the value of the 1-norm, Frobenius norm, infinity-norm, or the largest absolute value of any element of a general
rectangular matrix.

Function/Subroutine Documentation
REAL function clange (characterNORM, integerM, integerN, complex, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, real, dimension( * )WORK)
CLANGE returns the value of the 1-norm, Frobenius norm, infinity-norm, or the largest absolute value of any element of a general
rectangular matrix.

Purpose:

CLANGE  returns the value of the one norm,	or the Frobenius norm, or
the  infinity norm,  or the  element of  largest absolute value  of a
complex matrix A.

Returns:
CLANGE

CLANGE = ( max(abs(A(i,j))), NORM = 'M' or 'm'
(
( norm1(A),	    NORM = '1', 'O' or 'o'
(
( normI(A),	    NORM = 'I' or 'i'
(
( normF(A),	    NORM = 'F', 'f', 'E' or 'e'

where  norm1  denotes the  one norm of a matrix (maximum column sum),
normI  denotes the	infinity norm  of a matrix  (maximum row sum) and
normF  denotes the	Frobenius norm of a matrix (square root of sum of
squares).  Note that  max(abs(A(i,j)))  is not a consistent matrix norm.

Parameters:
NORM

NORM is CHARACTER*1
Specifies the value to be returned in CLANGE as described
above.

M

M is INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix A.  M >= 0.  When M = 0,
CLANGE is set to zero.

N

N is INTEGER
The number of columns of the matrix A.  N >= 0.  When N = 0,
CLANGE is set to zero.

A

A is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,N)
The m by n matrix A.

LDA

LDA is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A.  LDA >= max(M,1).

WORK

WORK is REAL array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK)),
where LWORK >= M when NORM = 'I'; otherwise, WORK is not
referenced.
