Common operations on vectors such as addition and multiplication are available in the blas part of the library (see BLAS Support). However, it is useful to have a small number of utility functions which do not require the full blas code. The following functions fall into this category.
This function copies the elements of the vector src into the vector dest. The two vectors must have the same length.
This function exchanges the elements of the vectors v and w by copying. The two vectors must have the same length.
