CL Name Style:

## 1Purpose

f06fec multiplies a real vector by the reciprocal of a scalar.

## 2Specification

 #include
 void f06fec (Integer n, double alpha, double x[], Integer incx)
The function may be called by the names: f06fec, nag_blas_drscl or nag_drscl.

## 3Description

f06fec performs the operation
 $x←1 α x$
where $x$ is an $n$-element real vector scattered with stride incx and $\alpha$ is a real nonzero scalar.

None.

## 5Arguments

1: $\mathbf{n}$Integer Input
On entry: $n$, the number of elements in $x$.
2: $\mathbf{alpha}$double Input
On entry: the scalar $\alpha$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{alpha}}\ne 0.0$.
3: $\mathbf{x}\left[\mathit{dim}\right]$double Input/Output
Note: the dimension, dim, of the array x must be at least $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,1+\left({\mathbf{n}}-1\right)×{\mathbf{incx}}\right)$.
On entry: the $n$-element vector $x$. ${x}_{\mathit{i}}$ must be stored in ${\mathbf{x}}\left[1+\left(\mathit{i}-1\right)×{\mathbf{incx}}\right]$, for $\mathit{i}=1,2,\dots ,{\mathbf{n}}$.
Intermediate elements of x are not referenced.
On exit: the updated vector $x$, stored in the same array elements used to supply the original vector.
4: $\mathbf{incx}$Integer Input
On entry: the increment in the subscripts of x between successive elements of $x$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{incx}}>0$.

None.

Not applicable.
