Lapack spptrf function

Hi everybody,

I have got a question concerning a specific LAPACK function: spptrf.

spptrf allows for a Cholesky factorization of a given positive definite symmetric matrix by only input of the upper (respectively lower) triangular factor, stored as an array.

Therefore is the given matrix has N*N dimension, spptrf will receive as input only the N(N+1)/2 independent element stored as uni-dimensional matrix.

Now, I've seen that C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2012a\extern\include\lapack.h includes spptrf. But can I directly call spptrf?

I do need this function in order to drastically reduce the computational effort of my current code.

I thank you in advance for any support you will show.
