### subroutine sgesv (integerN, integerNRHS, real, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, integer, dimension( * )IPIV, real, dimension( ldb, * )B, integerLDB, integerINFO)

**SGESV computes the solution to system of linear equations A * X = B for GE matrices** (simple driver)

**Purpose:**

```
SGESV computes the solution to a real system of linear equations
A * X = B,
where A is an N-by-N matrix and X and B are N-by-NRHS matrices.
The LU decomposition with partial pivoting and row interchanges is
used to factor A as
A = P * L * U,
where P is a permutation matrix, L is unit lower triangular, and U is
upper triangular. The factored form of A is then used to solve the
system of equations A * X = B.
```

**Parameters:**

*N*

```
N is INTEGER
The number of linear equations, i.e., the order of the
matrix A. N >= 0.
```

*NRHS*

```
NRHS is INTEGER
The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns
of the matrix B. NRHS >= 0.
```

*A*

```
A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the N-by-N coefficient matrix A.
On exit, the factors L and U from the factorization
A = P*L*U; the unit diagonal elements of L are not stored.
```

*LDA*

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

*IPIV*

```
IPIV is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
The pivot indices that define the permutation matrix P;
row i of the matrix was interchanged with row IPIV(i).
```

*B*

```
B is REAL array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
On entry, the N-by-NRHS matrix of right hand side matrix B.
On exit, if INFO = 0, the N-by-NRHS solution matrix X.
```

*LDB*

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

*INFO*

```
INFO is INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
> 0: if INFO = i, U(i,i) is exactly zero. The factorization
has been completed, but the factor U is exactly
singular, so the solution could not be computed.
