### subroutine sormlq (characterSIDE, characterTRANS, integerM, integerN, integerK, real, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, real, dimension( * )TAU, real, dimension( ldc, * )C, integerLDC, real, dimension( * )WORK, integerLWORK, integerINFO)

**SORMLQ**

**Purpose:**

```
SORMLQ overwrites the general real M-by-N matrix C with
SIDE = 'L' SIDE = 'R'
TRANS = 'N': Q * C C * Q
TRANS = 'T': Q**T * C C * Q**T
where Q is a real orthogonal matrix defined as the product of k
elementary reflectors
Q = H(k) . . . H(2) H(1)
as returned by SGELQF. Q is of order M if SIDE = 'L' and of order N
if SIDE = 'R'.
```

**Parameters:**

*SIDE*

```
SIDE is CHARACTER*1
= 'L': apply Q or Q**T from the Left;
= 'R': apply Q or Q**T from the Right.
```

*TRANS*

```
TRANS is CHARACTER*1
= 'N': No transpose, apply Q;
= 'T': Transpose, apply Q**T.
```

*M*

```
M is INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix C. M >= 0.
```

*N*

```
N is INTEGER
The number of columns of the matrix C. N >= 0.
```

*K*

```
K is INTEGER
The number of elementary reflectors whose product defines
the matrix Q.
If SIDE = 'L', M >= K >= 0;
if SIDE = 'R', N >= K >= 0.
```

*A*

```
A is REAL array, dimension
(LDA,M) if SIDE = 'L',
(LDA,N) if SIDE = 'R'
The i-th row must contain the vector which defines the
elementary reflector H(i), for i = 1,2,...,k, as returned by
SGELQF in the first k rows of its array argument A.
```

*LDA*

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

*TAU*

```
TAU is REAL array, dimension (K)
TAU(i) must contain the scalar factor of the elementary
reflector H(i), as returned by SGELQF.
```

*C*

```
C is REAL array, dimension (LDC,N)
On entry, the M-by-N matrix C.
On exit, C is overwritten by Q*C or Q**T*C or C*Q**T or C*Q.
```

*LDC*

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

*WORK*

```
WORK is REAL array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK))
On exit, if INFO = 0, WORK(1) returns the optimal LWORK.
```

*LWORK*

```
LWORK is INTEGER
The dimension of the array WORK.
If SIDE = 'L', LWORK >= max(1,N);
if SIDE = 'R', LWORK >= max(1,M).
For optimum performance LWORK >= N*NB if SIDE = 'L', and
LWORK >= M*NB if SIDE = 'R', where NB is the optimal
blocksize.
If LWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the routine
only calculates the optimal size of the WORK array, returns
this value as the first entry of the WORK array, and no error
message related to LWORK is issued by XERBLA.
```

*INFO*

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