NAME
DLAMCH  double precision machine parameters
SYNOPSIS
 DOUBLE PRECISION

FUNCTION DLAMCH( CMACH )

CHARACTER
CMACH
PURPOSE
DLAMCH determines double precision machine parameters.
ARGUMENTS
 CMACH (input) CHARACTER*1

Specifies the value to be returned by DLAMCH:
= aqEaq or aqeaq, DLAMCH := eps
= aqSaq or aqs , DLAMCH := sfmin
= aqBaq or aqbaq, DLAMCH := base
= aqPaq or aqpaq, DLAMCH := eps*base
= aqNaq or aqnaq, DLAMCH := t
= aqRaq or aqraq, DLAMCH := rnd
= aqMaq or aqmaq, DLAMCH := emin
= aqUaq or aquaq, DLAMCH := rmin
= aqLaq or aqlaq, DLAMCH := emax
= aqOaq or aqoaq, DLAMCH := rmax
where
 eps = relative machine precision

sfmin = safe minimum, such that 1/sfmin does not overflow
base = base of the machine
prec = eps*base
t = number of (base) digits in the mantissa
rnd = 1.0 when rounding occurs in addition, 0.0 otherwise
emin = minimum exponent before (gradual) underflow
rmin = underflow threshold  base**(emin1)
emax = largest exponent before overflow
rmax = overflow threshold  (base**emax)*(1eps)
