For modern C programming, defining functions is a two step process. First, you declare a function and its signature using a prototype. Then you define the function by providing a function body that defines what the function does.

```sgeql2.f(3)							      LAPACK							       sgeql2.f(3)

NAME
sgeql2.f -

SYNOPSIS
Functions/Subroutines
subroutine sgeql2 (M, N, A, LDA, TAU, WORK, INFO)
SGEQL2

Function/Subroutine Documentation
subroutine sgeql2 (integerM, integerN, real, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, real, dimension( * )TAU, real, dimension( * )WORK, integerINFO)
SGEQL2

Purpose:

SGEQL2 computes a QL factorization of a real m by n matrix A:
A = Q * L.

Parameters:
M

M is INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix A.  M >= 0.

N

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

A

A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the m by n matrix A.
On exit, if m >= n, the lower triangle of the subarray
A(m-n+1:m,1:n) contains the n by n lower triangular matrix L;
if m <= n, the elements on and below the (n-m)-th
superdiagonal contain the m by n lower trapezoidal matrix L;
the remaining elements, with the array TAU, represent the
orthogonal matrix Q as a product of elementary reflectors
(see Further Details).

LDA

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

TAU

TAU is REAL array, dimension (min(M,N))
The scalar factors of the elementary reflectors (see Further
Details).

WORK

WORK is REAL array, dimension (N)

INFO

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

Further Details:

The matrix Q is represented as a product of elementary reflectors

Q = H(k) . . . H(2) H(1), where k = min(m,n).

Each H(i) has the form

H(i) = I - tau * v * v**T

where tau is a real scalar, and v is a real vector with
v(m-k+i+1:m) = 0 and v(m-k+i) = 1; v(1:m-k+i-1) is stored on exit in
A(1:m-k+i-1,n-k+i), and tau in TAU(i).

subroutine sgelq2 (M, N, A, LDA, TAU, WORK, INFO)
SGELQ2

Function/Subroutine Documentation
subroutine sgelq2 (integerM, integerN, real, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, real, dimension( * )TAU, real, dimension( * )WORK, integerINFO)
SGELQ2

Purpose:

SGELQ2 computes an LQ factorization of a real m by n matrix A:
A = L * Q.

Parameters:
M

M is INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix A.  M >= 0.

N

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

A

A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the m by n matrix A.
On exit, the elements on and below the diagonal of the array
contain the m by min(m,n) lower trapezoidal matrix L (L is
lower triangular if m <= n); the elements above the diagonal,
with the array TAU, represent the orthogonal matrix Q as a
product of elementary reflectors (see Further Details).

TAU

TAU is REAL array, dimension (min(M,N))
The scalar factors of the elementary reflectors (see Further
Details).

WORK

WORK is REAL array, dimension (M)

INFO

INFO is INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
