SGECON

Purpose:

``` SGECON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number of a general
real matrix A, in either the 1-norm or the infinity-norm, using
the LU factorization computed by SGETRF.

An estimate is obtained for norm(inv(A)), and the reciprocal of the
condition number is computed as
RCOND = 1 / ( norm(A) * norm(inv(A)) ).
```

Parameters:

NORM

```          NORM is CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether the 1-norm condition number or the
infinity-norm condition number is required:
= '1' or 'O':  1-norm;
= 'I':         Infinity-norm.
```

N

```          N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix A.  N >= 0.
```

A

```          A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
The factors L and U from the factorization A = P*L*U
as computed by SGETRF.
```

LDA

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

ANORM

```          ANORM is REAL
If NORM = '1' or 'O', the 1-norm of the original matrix A.
If NORM = 'I', the infinity-norm of the original matrix A.
```

RCOND

```          RCOND is REAL
The reciprocal of the condition number of the matrix A,
computed as RCOND = 1/(norm(A) * norm(inv(A))).
```

WORK

```          WORK is REAL array, dimension (4*N)
```

IWORK

```          IWORK is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
```

INFO

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