```spptrs.f(3)							      LAPACK							       spptrs.f(3)

NAME
spptrs.f -

SYNOPSIS
Functions/Subroutines
subroutine spptrs (UPLO, N, NRHS, AP, B, LDB, INFO)
SPPTRS

Function/Subroutine Documentation
subroutine spptrs (characterUPLO, integerN, integerNRHS, real, dimension( * )AP, real, dimension( ldb, * )B, integerLDB, integerINFO)
SPPTRS

Purpose:

SPPTRS solves a system of linear equations A*X = B with a symmetric
positive definite matrix A in packed storage using the Cholesky
factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T computed by SPPTRF.

Parameters:
UPLO

UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U':  Upper triangle of A is stored;
= 'L':  Lower triangle of A is stored.

N

N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix A.  N >= 0.

NRHS

NRHS is INTEGER
The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns
of the matrix B.  NRHS >= 0.

AP

AP is REAL array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization
A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T, packed columnwise in a linear
array.  The j-th column of U or L is stored in the array AP
as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = U(i,j) for 1<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AP(i + (j-1)*(2n-j)/2) = L(i,j) for j<=i<=n.

B

B is REAL array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
On entry, the right hand side matrix B.
On exit, the solution matrix X.

LDB

LDB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array B.  LDB >= max(1,N).

INFO

INFO is INTEGER
= 0:  successful exit
< 0:  if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
