LINPACK_D
Linear Algebra Library
Double Precision Real


LINPACK_D is a FORTRAN90 library which solves systems of linear equations for a variety of matrix types and storage modes.

LINPACK has officially been superseded by the LAPACK library. The LAPACK library uses more modern algorithms and code structure. However, the LAPACK library can be extraordinarily complex; what is done in a single LINPACK routine may correspond to 10 or 20 utility routines in LAPACK. This is fine if you treat LAPACK as a black box. But if you wish to learn how the algorithm works, or to adapt it, or to convert the code to another language, this is a real drawback. This is one reason I still keep a copy of LINPACK around.

Versions of LINPACK in various arithmetic precisions are available through the NETLIB web site.
