.SH PURPOSE
SPTCON computes the reciprocal of the condition number (in the
1-norm) of a real symmetric positive definite tridiagonal matrix
using the factorization A = L*D*L**T or A = U**T*D*U computed by
SPTTRF.
Norm(inv(A)) is computed by a direct method, and the reciprocal of
the condition number is computed as
.br
RCOND = 1 / (ANORM * norm(inv(A))).

.SH ARGUMENTS
.TP 8
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
.TP 8
D (input) REAL array, dimension (N)
The n diagonal elements of the diagonal matrix D from the
factorization of A, as computed by SPTTRF.
.TP 8
E (input) REAL array, dimension (N-1)
The (n-1) off-diagonal elements of the unit bidiagonal factor
U or L from the factorization of A, as computed by SPTTRF.
.TP 8
ANORM (input) REAL
The 1-norm of the original matrix A.
.TP 8
RCOND (output) REAL
The reciprocal of the condition number of the matrix A,
computed as RCOND = 1/(ANORM * AINVNM), where AINVNM is the
1-norm of inv(A) computed in this routine.
.TP 8
WORK (workspace) REAL array, dimension (N)
.TP 8
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
.br
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
