# qrfact(A)

```
.. qrfact(A) -> SPQR.Factorization
Compute the QR factorization of a sparse matrix ``A``. A fill-reducing permutation is used. The main application of this type is to solve least squares problems with ``\``. The function calls the C library SPQR and a few additional functions from the library are wrapped but not exported.
