+LAPACK is a library of Fortran 90 with subroutines for solving
+the most commonly occurring problems in numerical linear algebra.
+It is freely-available software, and is copyrighted.
+LAPACK is available on netlib and can be obtained via the World Wide
+Web and anonymous ftp.
+ http://www.netlib.org/lapack/
+The distribution tar file contains the Fortran source for LAPACK and the
+testing programs. It also contains the Fortran77
+reference implementation of the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms
+(the Level 1, 2, and 3 BLAS) needed by LAPACK. However this code is
+intended for use only if there is no other implementation of the BLAS
+already available on your machine; the efficiency of LAPACK depends
+very much on the efficiency of the BLAS.
+## Installation
+ - LAPACK can be installed with `make`. Configuration have to be set in the
+ `make.inc` file. A `make.inc.example` for a Linux machine running GNU compilers
+ is given in the main directory. Some specific `make.inc` are also available in
+ the `INSTALL` directory.
+ - LAPACK includes also the CMake build. You will need to have CMake installed
+ on your machine (CMake is available at http://www.cmake.org/). CMake will
+ allow an easy installation on a Windows Machine.
+ - Specific information to run LAPACK under Windows are available at
+ http://icl.cs.utk.edu/lapack-for-windows/lapack/.
+ For further information on LAPACK please read our FAQ at
+ http://www.netlib.org/lapack/#_faq
+ A User forum is also available to help you with the LAPACK library at
+ http://icl.cs.utk.edu/lapack-forum/
+## User Support
+LAPACK has been thoroughly tested, on many different
+types of computers. The LAPACK project supports the package in the
+sense that reports of errors or poor performance will gain immediate
+attention from the developers. Such reports, descriptions
+of interesting applications, and other comments should be sent by
+electronic mail to lapack@cs.utk.edu.
+A list of known problems, bugs, and compiler errors for LAPACK is
+maintained on netlib.
+ * http://www.netlib.org/lapack/release_notes.html
+A User forum is also available to help you with the LAPACK library at
+ http://icl.cs.utk.edu/lapack-forum/.
+You can also contact directly the LAPACK team at lapack@cs.utk.edu.
+## Testing
+The complete package, including test code in four
+different Fortran data types (real, complex, double precision, double
+complex), contains some 805,000 lines of Fortran source and comments.
+You will need approximately 33 Mbytes to read the complete tape.
+We recommend that you run the testing. The total
+space requirements for the testing for all four data
+types, including the object files, is approximately 80 Mbytes.
+A README file containing the information in this letter is located
+in the LAPACK directory. Postscript and LaTeX versions of the Quick
+Installation Guide are in the `LAPACK/INSTALL` directory, in the files
+`lawn81.tex`, `psfig.tex`, `lawn81.ps`, and `org2.ps`. Consult the Installation
+Guide for further details on installing the package and on what is contained
+in each subdirectory. For complete information on the LAPACK Testing
+please consult LAPACK Working Note 41 "Installation
+Guide for LAPACK".
+## User Guide
+It is highly recommended that you obtain a copy of the Third Edition of
+the LAPACK Users' Guide published by SIAM in Winter, 1999. This Users'
+Guide gives a detailed description of the philosophy behind LAPACK as well
+as an explanation of its usage. The LAPACK Users' Guide can be purchased from:
+SIAM; Customer Service; P. O. Box 7260; Philadelphia, PA 19104;
+215-382-9800, FAX 215-386-7999. It will also be available from booksellers.
+To order by email, send email to service@siam.org. The book is also
+available via SIAM's World Wide Web URL at http://www.siam.org. The
+ISBN number is 0-89871-447-8, and SIAM order code is SE09. The list
+price for SIAM members is $31.20; the cost for nonmembers is $39.00.
+To view an HTML version of the Users' Guide please refer to the URL
+ http://www.netlib.org/lapack/lug/lapack_lug.html.
+LAPACK now includes the LAPACKE package
+LAPACKE is a Standard C language APIs for LAPACK
+collaboration LAPACK and INTEL Math Kernel Library
+Documentation available in the DOCS folder
+## Related Projects
+The Fortran95 interface to LAPACK is available, as well as an f2c'ed
+version of LAPACK, and a C++ version of a subset of LAPACK routines.

+## Working Notes
+A number of technical reports were written during the development of
+LAPACK and published as LAPACK Working Notes, initially by Argonne
+National Laboratory and later by the University of Tennessee. Many of
+these reports later appeared as journal articles. Most of these working
+notes are available in pdf and postscript form from netlib.
