*
*  -- LAPACK auxiliary routine (version 3.1) --
*     Univ. of Tennessee, Univ. of California Berkeley and NAG Ltd..
*     November 2006
*
*     .. Scalar Arguments ..
CHARACTER          CA, CB
*     ..
*
*  Purpose
*  =======
*
*  LSAME returns .TRUE. if CA is the same letter as CB regardless of
*  case.
*
*  Arguments
*  =========
*
*  CA      (input) CHARACTER*1
*  CB      (input) CHARACTER*1
*          CA and CB specify the single characters to be compared.

LSAME = CA.EQ.CB
IF( LSAME )
\$   RETURN
*
*     Now test for equivalence if both characters are alphabetic.
*
ZCODE = ICHAR( 'Z' )
*
*     Use 'Z' rather than 'A' so that ASCII can be detected on Prime
*     machines, on which ICHAR returns a value with bit 8 set.
*     ICHAR('A') on Prime machines returns 193 which is the same as
*     ICHAR('A') on an EBCDIC machine.
*
INTA = ICHAR( CA )

*
IF( ZCODE.EQ.90 .OR. ZCODE.EQ.122 ) THEN
*
*        ASCII is assumed - ZCODE is the ASCII code of either lower or
*        upper case 'Z'.

*
*        ASCII is assumed, on Prime machines - ZCODE is the ASCII code
