Comment 1 Ivana Varekova 2005-03-29 15:20:17 UTC
Thank you for your notice.
Lapack man pages are in section l (not in section 1). 
I think lapack man pages can be in this section becouse of in section 3 there
are a lot of other manual pages and section l is quite less used so lapack man
pages are more tabular here.
