F08JFF (DSTERF) computes all the eigenvalues of a real symmetric tridiagonal matrix, using a square-root-free variant of the algorithm.
The routine uses an explicit shift, and, like F08JEF (DSTEQR)
, switches between the
variants in order to handle graded matrices effectively (see Greenbaum and Dongarra (1980)

There is no complex analogue of this routine.
This example computes all the eigenvalues of the symmetric tridiagonal matrix
