C***DESCRIPTION
C
C     SPOSL solves the real symmetric positive definite system
C     A * X = B
C     using the factors computed by SPOCO or SPOFA.
C
C     On Entry
C
C        A       REAL(LDA, N)
C                the output from SPOCO or SPOFA.
C
C        LDA     INTEGER
C                the leading dimension of the array  A .
C
C        N       INTEGER
C                the order of the matrix  A .
C
C        B       REAL(N)
C                the right hand side vector.
C
C     On Return
C
C        B       the solution vector  X .
C
C     Error Condition
C
C        A division by zero will occur if the input factor contains
C        a zero on the diagonal.  Technically, this indicates
C        singularity, but it is usually caused by improper subroutine
C        arguments.  It will not occur if the subroutines are called
C        correctly and  INFO .EQ. 0 .
C
C     To compute  INVERSE(A) * C  where  C  is a matrix
C     with  P  columns
C           CALL SPOCO(A,LDA,N,RCOND,Z,INFO)
C           IF (RCOND is too small .OR. INFO .NE. 0) GO TO ...
C           DO 10 J = 1, P
C              CALL SPOSL(A,LDA,N,C(1,J))
C        10 CONTINUE
