## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine dlascl (character TYPE, integer KL, integer KU, double precision CFROM, double precision CTO, integer M, integer N, double precision, dimension( lda, * ) A, integer LDA, integer INFO)

**DLASCL** multiplies a general rectangular matrix by a real scalar defined as cto/cfrom.

**Purpose:**

DLASCL multiplies the M by N real matrix A by the real scalar CTO/CFROM. This is done without over/underflow as long as the final result CTO*A(I,J)/CFROM does not over/underflow. TYPE specifies that A may be full, upper triangular, lower triangular, upper Hessenberg, or banded.

**Parameters:***TYPE*TYPE is CHARACTER*1 TYPE indices the storage type of the input matrix. = 'G': A is a full matrix. = 'L': A is a lower triangular matrix. = 'U': A is an upper triangular matrix. = 'H': A is an upper Hessenberg matrix. = 'B': A is a symmetric band matrix with lower bandwidth KL and upper bandwidth KU and with the only the lower half stored. = 'Q': A is a symmetric band matrix with lower bandwidth KL and upper bandwidth KU and with the only the upper half stored. = 'Z': A is a band matrix with lower bandwidth KL and upper bandwidth KU. See DGBTRF for storage details.

*KL*KL is INTEGER The lower bandwidth of A. Referenced only if TYPE = 'B', 'Q' or 'Z'.

*KU*KU is INTEGER The upper bandwidth of A. Referenced only if TYPE = 'B', 'Q' or 'Z'.

*CFROM*CFROM is DOUBLE PRECISION

*CTO*CTO is DOUBLE PRECISION The matrix A is multiplied by CTO/CFROM. A(I,J) is computed without over/underflow if the final result CTO*A(I,J)/CFROM can be represented without over/underflow. CFROM must be nonzero.

*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 DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDA,N) The matrix to be multiplied by CTO/CFROM. See TYPE for the storage type.

*LDA*LDA is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. If TYPE = 'G', 'L', 'U', 'H', LDA >= max(1,M); TYPE = 'B', LDA >= KL+1; TYPE = 'Q', LDA >= KU+1; TYPE = 'Z', LDA >= 2*KL+KU+1.

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