+ The BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms) are high quality "building
+ block" routines for performing basic vector and matrix operations. Level 1
+ BLAS do vector-vector operations, Level 2 BLAS do matrix-vector operations,
+ and Level 3 BLAS do matrix-matrix operations. Because the BLAS are
+ efficient, portable, and widely available, they're commonly used in the
+ development of high quality linear algebra software, LAPACK for
+ example. This packages implements the reference C library as a wrapper
+ to the FORTRAN 77 BLAS library.
