This package contains the command "lapack", which provides a simple interface to call any LAPACK or BLAS routine from inside Matlab, as well as the command "lapackhelp", which brings up detailed information about any LAPACK or BLAS routine.

A summary of the features include:
· Uses Matlab's internal LAPACK and BLAS libraries.
· Automatic argument type conversion (ie. converts arguments from Matlab types to FORTRAN types).
· Easy access to detailed descriptions about the behavior and arguments for every LAPACK and BLAS function
· Allows use of LAPACK and BLAS without any knowledge of MEX, C, or FORTRAN.
