subroutine **slabad** (SMALL, LARGE)**SLABAD**

## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine slabad (realSMALL, realLARGE)

**SLABAD**

**Purpose:**

SLABAD takes as input the values computed by SLAMCH for underflow and overflow, and returns the square root of each of these values if the log of LARGE is sufficiently large. This subroutine is intended to identify machines with a large exponent range, such as the Crays, and redefine the underflow and overflow limits to be the square roots of the values computed by SLAMCH. This subroutine is needed because SLAMCH does not compensate for poor arithmetic in the upper half of the exponent range, as is found on a Cray.

**Parameters:**-
*SMALL*SMALL is REAL On entry, the underflow threshold as computed by SLAMCH. On exit, if LOG10(LARGE) is sufficiently large, the square root of SMALL, otherwise unchanged.

*LARGE*LARGE is REAL On entry, the overflow threshold as computed by SLAMCH. On exit, if LOG10(LARGE) is sufficiently large, the square root of LARGE, otherwise unchanged.
