Xnetlib is an X-version of netlib recently developed at the University of
Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Unlike netlib, which uses
electronic mail to process requests for software and other text, xnetlib
uses an X Window graphical user interface and a socket-based connection
between the user's machine and the xnetlib server machine to process
software requests. The complete contents of LAPACK is available in
tar/compress format from xnetlib.
To receive a copy of xnetlib send the message "send xnetlib.shar from
xnetlib" to email@example.com.
When you receive the shar file, remove the mail header, save it to a file,
type 'sh filename' and follow the instructions in the README file.
Alternatively, the complete LAPACK package can be obtained from NAG on
magnetic media for a handling charge. For further details contact NAG at
one of the following addresses:

LAPACK has been thoroughly tested, on many different types of computers.
The LAPACK project supports the package in the sense that reports of
errors or poor performance will gain immediate attention from the
developers. Such reports, descriptions of interesting applications, and
other comments should be sent by electronic mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
LAPACK USERS' GUIDE
The LAPACK Users' Guide is published by SIAM and was made available May,
1992. LAPACK Users' Guide gives an informal introduction to the design of
the algorithms and software, summarizes the contents of the package, and
describes the conventions used in the software and documentation, and
includes complete specifications for calling the routines. The LAPACK
Users' Guide can be purchased from: SIAM; 3600 University City Science
Center; Philadelphia, PA 19104-2688; 215-382-9800, FAX 215-386-7999. It
will also be available from booksellers. The Guide costs $15.60 for SIAM
members, and $19.50 for non-members. Please specify order code OT31 when
ordering. To order by email, send email to email@example.com.
A list of known problems, bugs, and compiler errors for LAPACK, as well as
errata for the LAPACK Users' Guide and the LAPACK code itself, is
maintained on netlib. For a copy of this report, send email to
firstname.lastname@example.org with a message of the form: send release_notes from
LAPACK WORKING NOTES
A number of working notes were written during the development of LAPACK
and published as LAPACK Working Notes, initially by Argonne National
Laboratory and later by the University of Tennessee. Many of these
reports have subsequently appeared as journal articles. Most of these
working notes are available in postscript form from netlib. To receive a
list of available reports, send email to email@example.com with a message of
the form: send index from lapack/lawns. Otherwise, requests for copies of
these working notes can be sent to the following address.

The name of each LAPACK routine is a coded specification of its function
(within the very tight limits of standard Fortran 77 6-character names).
All driver and computational routines have names of the form XYYZZZ, where
for some driver routines the 6th character is blank.
The first letter, X, indicates the data type as follows:
D DOUBLE PRECISION
Z COMPLEX*16 or DOUBLE COMPLEX
The next two letters, YY, indicate the type of matrix (or of the most
significant matrix). Most of these two-letter codes apply to both real
and complex matrices; a few apply specifically to one or the other.
The last three letters ZZZ indicate the computation performed. For
example, SGEBRD is a single precision routine that performs a bidiagonal
reduction (BRD) of a real general matrix.
