1 Purpose

f06jlf computes the index of the absolutely largest component of a real vector.

2 Specification

Fortran Interface
Function f06jlf ( n, x, incx)
Integer :: f06jlf
Integer, Intent (In) :: n, incx
Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (In) :: x(*)
C Header Interface
#include <nag.h>
Integer  f06jlf_ (const Integer *n, const double x[], const Integer *incx)
The routine may be called by the names f06jlf, nagf_blas_idamax or its BLAS name idamax.

3 Description

f06jlf returns, via the function name, the smallest index i such that
where x is an n-element real vector scattered with stride incx.

5 Arguments

1: n Integer Input
On entry: n, the number of elements in x.
2: x(*) Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Input
Note: the dimension of the array x must be at least max(1, 1+(n-1) ×incx ) .
On entry: the n-element vector x. xi must be stored in x(1+(i-1)×incx), for i=1,2,,n.
Intermediate elements of x are not referenced.
3: incx Integer Input
On entry: the increment in the subscripts of x between successive elements of x.
Constraint: incx>0.
