**DLAQPS** computes a step of QR factorization with column pivoting of a real m-by-n matrix A by using BLAS level 3.

**Purpose:**

```
DLAQPS computes a step of QR factorization with column pivoting
of a real M-by-N matrix A by using Blas-3. It tries to factorize
NB columns from A starting from the row OFFSET+1, and updates all
of the matrix with Blas-3 xGEMM.
In some cases, due to catastrophic cancellations, it cannot
factorize NB columns. Hence, the actual number of factorized
columns is returned in KB.
Block A(1:OFFSET,1:N) is accordingly pivoted, but not factorized.
```

**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
```

*OFFSET*

```
OFFSET is INTEGER
The number of rows of A that have been factorized in
previous steps.
```

*NB*

```
NB is INTEGER
The number of columns to factorize.
```

*KB*

```
KB is INTEGER
The number of columns actually factorized.
```

*A*

```
A is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the M-by-N matrix A.
On exit, block A(OFFSET+1:M,1:KB) is the triangular
factor obtained and block A(1:OFFSET,1:N) has been
accordingly pivoted, but no factorized.
The rest of the matrix, block A(OFFSET+1:M,KB+1:N) has
been updated.
```

*LDA*

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

*JPVT*

```
JPVT is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
JPVT(I) = K <==> Column K of the full matrix A has been
permuted into position I in AP.
```

*TAU*

```
TAU is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (KB)
The scalar factors of the elementary reflectors.
```

*VN1*

```
VN1 is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N)
The vector with the partial column norms.
```

*VN2*

```
VN2 is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N)
The vector with the exact column norms.
```

*AUXV*

```
AUXV is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (NB)
Auxiliar vector.
```

*F*

```
F is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDF,NB)
Matrix F**T = L*Y**T*A.
```

*LDF*

```
LDF is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array F. LDF >= max(1,N).
```
