1979 ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software  
A package of 39 low-level subprograms for many of the basic operations of numerical linear algebra is presented. The package is intended to be used with FORTRAN. The operations in the package are dot products, elementary vector operations, Givens transformations, vector copy and swap, vector norms, vector scaling, and the indices of components of largest magnitu3F. The subprograms and a test driver are available in portable FORTRAN.
