Functions/Subroutines REAL function slamch (CMACH) SLAMCH REAL function slamc3 (A, B) SLAMC3 Function/Subroutine Documentation REAL function slamc3 (realA, realB) SLAMC3 Purpose: SLAMC3 is intended to force A and B to be stored prior to doing the addition of A and B , for use in situations where optimizers might hold one of these in a register. Author: LAPACK is a software package provided by Univ. of Tennessee, Univ. of California Berkeley, Univ. of Colorado Denver and NAG Ltd.. Date: November 2011 Parameters: A B The values A and B. Definition at line 171 of file slamch.f. REAL function slamch (characterCMACH) SLAMCH Purpose: SLAMCH determines single precision machine parameters. Parameters: CMACH Specifies the value to be returned by SLAMCH: = 'E' or 'e', SLAMCH := eps = 'S' or 's , SLAMCH := sfmin = 'B' or 'b', SLAMCH := base = 'P' or 'p', SLAMCH := eps*base = 'N' or 'n', SLAMCH := t = 'R' or 'r', SLAMCH := rnd = 'M' or 'm', SLAMCH := emin = 'U' or 'u', SLAMCH := rmin = 'L' or 'l', SLAMCH := emax = 'O' or 'o', SLAMCH := rmax where eps = relative machine precision sfmin = safe minimum, such that 1/sfmin does not overflow base = base of the machine prec = eps*base t = number of (base) digits in the mantissa rnd = 1.0 when rounding occurs in addition, 0.0 otherwise emin = minimum exponent before (gradual) underflow rmin = underflow threshold - base**(emin-1) emax = largest exponent before overflow rmax = overflow threshold - (base**emax)*(1-eps) Author: Univ. of Tennessee Univ. of California Berkeley Univ. of Colorado Denver NAG Ltd.
