SYNOPSIS

REAL FUNCTION PSLAMCH( ICTXT, CMACH )
    CHARACTER CMACH
    INTEGER ICTXT

PURPOSE

PSLAMCH determines single precision machine parameters.

ARGUMENTS

ICTXT (global input) INTEGER
  The BLACS context handle in which the computation takes place.
CMACH (global input) CHARACTER*1
  Specifies the value to be returned by PSLAMCH:
= ’E’ or ’e’, PSLAMCH := eps
= ’S’ or ’s , PSLAMCH := sfmin
= ’B’ or ’b’, PSLAMCH := base
= ’P’ or ’p’, PSLAMCH := eps*base
= ’N’ or ’n’, PSLAMCH := t
= ’R’ or ’r’, PSLAMCH := rnd
= ’M’ or ’m’, PSLAMCH := emin
= ’U’ or ’u’, PSLAMCH := rmin
= ’L’ or ’l’, PSLAMCH := emax
= ’O’ or ’o’, PSLAMCH := 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**(emin-1) emax = largest exponent before overflow rmax = overflow threshold - (base**emax)*(1-eps)
