PLAPACK provides platform independent level-2 BLAS calls by adding the prefix ``PLA_''. The FORTRAN call
CALL DGEMV( "N", M, N, ALPHA, A, LDA, X, INCX, BETA, Y, INCY )becomes the C call
PLA_dgemv( "N", &m, &n, &alpha, a, &lda, x, &incx, &beta, y, &incy );Only the first character of the string parameters are checked. Thus "N" is equivalent to "No transpose".
