SLA_MXM  Multiply Matrices
 ACTION:
 Product of two matrices (single precision).
 CALL:
 CALL sla_MXM (A, B, C)
 GIVEN:

A 
R(3,3) 
matrix A 
B 
R(3,3) 
matrix B 
 RETURNED:

C 
R(3,3) 
matrix result: AB 
 NOTE:
 To comply with the ANSI Fortran 77 standard, A, B and C must
be different arrays. The routine is, in fact, coded
so as to work properly on the VAX and many other systems even
if this rule is violated, something that is not, however,
recommended.
