.SH NAME
SLACON - the 1-norm of a square, real matrix A
.SH SYNOPSIS
.TP 19
SUBROUTINE SLACON(
N, V, X, ISGN, EST, KASE )
.TP 19

INTEGER
KASE, N

V( * ), X( * )
.SH PURPOSE
SLACON estimates the 1-norm of a square, real matrix A.
Reverse communication is used for evaluating matrix-vector products.
.SH ARGUMENTS
.TP 7
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix. N >= 1.
.TP 7
V (workspace) REAL array, dimension (N)
On the final return, V = A*W, where EST = norm(V)/norm(W)
(W is not returned).
.TP 7
X (input/output) REAL array, dimension (N)
On an intermediate return, X should be overwritten by
A * X, if KASE=1,
A\(aq * X, if KASE=2,
and SLACON must be re-called with all the other parameters
unchanged.
.TP 7
ISGN (workspace) INTEGER array, dimension (N)
.TP 7
EST (input/output) REAL
On entry with KASE = 1 or 2 and JUMP = 3, EST should be
unchanged from the previous call to SLACON.
On exit, EST is an estimate (a lower bound) for norm(A).
.TP 7
KASE (input/output) INTEGER
On the initial call to SLACON, KASE should be 0.
On an intermediate return, KASE will be 1 or 2, indicating
whether X should be overwritten by A * X or A\(aq * X.
On the final return from SLACON, KASE will again be 0.
