### logical function lsame (character CA, character CB)

LSAME

Purpose:

### subroutine xerbla (character*(*) SRNAME, integer INFO)

XERBLA

Purpose:

``` XERBLA  is an error handler for the LAPACK routines.
It is called by an LAPACK routine if an input parameter has an
invalid value.  A message is printed and execution stops.

Installers may consider modifying the STOP statement in order to
call system-specific exception-handling facilities.```
Parameters

SRNAME

```          SRNAME is CHARACTER*(*)
The name of the routine which called XERBLA.```

INFO

```          INFO is INTEGER
The position of the invalid parameter in the parameter list
of the calling routine.```

### subroutine xerbla_array (character(1), dimension(srname_len) SRNAME_ARRAY, integer SRNAME_LEN, integer INFO)

XERBLA_ARRAY

Purpose:

``` XERBLA_ARRAY assists other languages in calling XERBLA, the LAPACK
and BLAS error handler.  Rather than taking a Fortran string argument
as the function's name, XERBLA_ARRAY takes an array of single
characters along with the array's length.  XERBLA_ARRAY then copies
up to 32 characters of that array into a Fortran string and passes
that to XERBLA.  If called with a non-positive SRNAME_LEN,
XERBLA_ARRAY will call XERBLA with a string of all blank characters.

Say some macro or other device makes XERBLA_ARRAY available to C99
by a name lapack_xerbla and with a common Fortran calling convention.
Then a C99 program could invoke XERBLA via:
{
int flen = strlen(__func__);
lapack_xerbla(__func__, &flen, &info);
}

Providing XERBLA_ARRAY is not necessary for intercepting LAPACK
errors.  XERBLA_ARRAY calls XERBLA.```
Parameters

SRNAME_ARRAY

```          SRNAME_ARRAY is CHARACTER(1) array, dimension (SRNAME_LEN)
The name of the routine which called XERBLA_ARRAY.```

SRNAME_LEN

```          SRNAME_LEN is INTEGER
The length of the name in SRNAME_ARRAY.```

INFO

```          INFO is INTEGER
The position of the invalid parameter in the parameter list
of the calling routine.```
