## ◆ sscal()

 subroutine sscal ( integer N, real SA, real, dimension(*) SX, integer INCX )

SSCAL

Purpose:
```    SSCAL scales a vector by a constant.
uses unrolled loops for increment equal to 1.```
Parameters
 [in] N ``` N is INTEGER number of elements in input vector(s)``` [in] SA ``` SA is REAL On entry, SA specifies the scalar alpha.``` [in,out] SX ` SX is REAL array, dimension ( 1 + ( N - 1 )*abs( INCX ) )` [in] INCX ``` INCX is INTEGER storage spacing between elements of SX```

modified 3/93 to return if incx .le. 0.
modified 12/3/93, array(1) declarations changed to array(*)```
