1 Purpose

f06clf computes the quotient of two complex scalars.

2 Specification

Fortran Interface
Function f06clf ( a, b, fail)
Complex (Kind=nag_wp) :: f06clf
Complex (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (In) :: a, b
Logical, Intent (Out) :: fail
C Header Interface
#include <nag.h>
Complex  f06clf_ (const Complex *a, const Complex *b, logical *fail)
The routine may be called by the names f06clf or nagf_blas_zdiv.

3 Description

f06clf returns the value q via the function name, where
q= { a/b, if ​a/b​ does not overflow, 0, if ​a=0, cflmax, if ​a0​ and ​a/b​ would overflow.  
Here cflmax is a large complex value, given by
flmax is the real value given by 1/(x02amf), and for real x, sign(x/0) is taken as signx.

On entry: the value a.
2: b Complex (Kind=nag_wp) Input
On entry: the value b.
3: fail Logical Output
On exit: .TRUE. if a/b would overflow (in which case |Re(q)|=|Im(q)|=flmax) or a=b=0 (in which case q=0); otherwise .FALSE..
