Linpack software, which was released in 1979, for solving linear algebra problems on high-performance computers is reviewed. The Linpack benchmark and standards development are discussed. Lapack, a linear algebra library that embodies ideas of locality of reference and data reuse, is described. The algorithms design in Lapack and the advantages and future developments of Lapack are also discussed.<>
