PLAPACK provides
platform independent level-1 BLAS calls by adding
the prefix ```PLA_`''.
Thus, the sequence of FORTRAN statements

becomes the sequence of C statementsDOUBLE PRECISION X( 100 ), Y( 100 ) INTEGER N, INCX, INCY ... CALL DCOPY( N, X, INCX, Y, INCY )

Since FORTRAN passes arguments by address,double x[ 100 ], y[ 100 ] int n, incx, incy; ... PLA_dcopy( &n, x, &incx, y, &incy );
