#### NAME

```       LAPACK-3 - returns the value of the one norm, or the Frobenius norm, or the infinity norm,
or the element of largest absolute value of a real matrix A

```

#### SYNOPSIS

```       REAL FUNCTION SLANGE( NORM, M, N, A, LDA, WORK )

CHARACTER NORM

INTEGER   LDA, M, N

REAL      A( LDA, * ), WORK( * )

```

#### PURPOSE

```       SLANGE  returns the value of the one norm,  or the Frobenius norm, or the  infinity  norm,
or the  element of  largest absolute value  of a real matrix A.

```

#### DESCRIPTION

```        SLANGE returns the value
SLANGE = ( 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.

```

#### ARGUMENTS

```        NORM    (input) CHARACTER*1
Specifies the value to be returned in SLANGE as described
above.

M       (input) INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix A.  M >= 0.  When M = 0,
SLANGE is set to zero.

N       (input) INTEGER
The number of columns of the matrix A.  N >= 0.  When N = 0,
SLANGE is set to zero.

A       (input) REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
The m by n matrix A.

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

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