Your attention is drawn to the terms and conditions of the Software License regarding the use of NAG software. Requests for information about the availability of other implementations must be referred to NAG.
This implementation is a compiled, tested, ready-to-use version of the NAG Fortran Library that is considered suitable for operation on the computer systems detailed below:
hardware: AMD 64 bit systems and compatible (including Intel ® 64-bit systems) operating system: Linux 188.8.131.52-0.10-smp (glibc-2.4) and compatible Fortran compiler: GNU Fortran (GCC) 4.3.2 and compatible
Please note that this product will NOT work with earlier versions of the compiler (such as version 4.1.x or 4.2.x).
The libraries in this implementation are compatible with GNU Fortran 4.4.x, but the compiled interface-block files (nag_interface_blocks/*.mod) are not. They will need to be recompiled as shown in Section 4.2.1. Interface block compatibility.
This implementation was produced at NAG Ltd., Oxford on the computing system detailed below:
hardware: AMD64 2.2GHz operating system: Linux 184.108.40.206-0.10-smp (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (x86_64)) with glibc-2.4 Fortran compiler: GNU Fortran (GCC) 4.3.2 compiler flags: -O3 -DUSE_F90_ALLOCATE -Wall -W -Wno-unused -Wno-uninitialized -fPIC -fno-second-underscore -m64 -fdefault-integer-8 -DIS_64BIT
This implementation has been tested at NAG Ltd., Oxford on the computing system detailed below:
hardware: Intel ® Xeon ® E5405 2.00GHz operating system: Linux 220.127.116.11-170.2.72.fc10.x86_64 (Fedora release 10 (Cambridge)) with glibc-2.9 Fortran compiler: GNU Fortran (GCC) 4.4.1
The NAG Fortran Library, Mark 22, was compiled with the highest level of optimization that enabled the functionality provided by the library to be verified and validated.
Most source files were compiled with compiler flags:
-O3 -DUSE_F90_ALLOCATE -Wall -W -Wno-unused -Wno-uninitialized -fPIC -fno-second-underscore -m64 -fdefault-integer-8 -DIS_64BIT -c
It was necessary to compile some code without full optimization.
These files were compiled with compiler flags -O0 -DUSE_F90_ALLOCATE -Wall -W -Wno-unused -Wno-uninitialized -fPIC -fno-second-underscore -m64 -fdefault-integer-8 -DIS_64BIT -c:
This library has been tested using the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) and linear algebra routines (LAPACK) provided by NAG (see the Chapter Introductions for F06, F07 and F08 in the NAG Mark 22 Library Manual, which we will refer to as the Library Manual).
This library has been also tested with 64-bit Integer version 4.4.0 of the AMD Core Math Library (ACML), which is supplied as a part of this product (see contents). Please see the AMD web site for further information about ACML (http://developer.amd.com/acml).

The files require approximately the following disk space:
Library software: 204 MB Library Manual: 310 MB
If you have downloaded the Library materials from our web site as a tar gzip file (fll6a22dhl.tgz), cd to the directory where the file is located and extract the installation materials using the following commands:
gunzip fll6a22dhl.tgz tar xvf fll6a22dhl.tarThis will extract the files install.sh, fl22.tar, lic_agr.txt, in.html and un.html.
If you have downloaded the Library Manual as a tar gzip file (mk22_doc.tgz) run the command
gunzip mk22_doc.tgzto extract the file mk22_doc.tar.
./install.shBy default, the materials will be installed in /opt/NAG/ or /usr/local/NAG/ depending on your system. You may choose a different location. In this document we refer to the directory /opt/NAG/fll6a22dhl or /usr/local/NAG/fll6a22dhl as [INSTALL_DIR]. This convention is also used in the Users' Note (un.html).
The directory [INSTALL_DIR]/scripts contains one or more scripts to show how to use the libraries provided with this implementation. See Users' Note, Example Programs. Subsequent to the installation, if you move the library to some other location then these scripts must be changed to reflect that fact.
Each library is provided in both static and shareable format. You also have a choice of libraries; self contained libraries which use NAG supplied BLAS and LAPACK or libraries which require the use of vendor supplied BLAS and LAPACK.
To simplify access to the libraries you may wish to create symbolic links in a system location such as /usr/lib pointing at the installed libraries. They would then be in the default search path of the linker during the link phase, and be available for execution at run time (in the case of shareable libraries). Note that if both the static and shareable version of a library are placed in a directory then the shareable version is usually used by default.
The NAG Fortran Library interface blocks define the type and arguments of each user callable NAG Fortran Library routine. These are not essential to calling the NAG Fortran Library from Fortran programs. Their purpose is to allow the Fortran compiler to check that NAG Fortran Library routines are called correctly.
The interface block files (nag_interface_blocks/*) are supplied in both source form and pre-compiled module form. (The source form is only required if the precompiled form is incompatible with the compiler in use.)
The -Ipathname option should then be specified on each compiler invocation (where pathname is [INSTALL_DIR]/nag_interface_blocks) to tell the compiler where to find the modules (see Users' Note, Interface Blocks).
The install script can install the Library Manual in the same location as the NAG Library material or at some other location of your choice.
You may wish to move the Library Manual to the same location as that for other NAG products. You are encouraged to make it readily available to users.
In order to enable the software, NAG will issue you with a license key. The license key is contained in a text file consisting of details of the software that will be enabled.
To request a license key, run the program khostid located in the license/bin/amd64/ subdirectory of the software distribution. This utility must be run from a command prompt. Return the information that it displays, together with the product code (in this case FLL6A22DHL), by e-mail (or FAX) to NAG. Alternatively, direct the output from this utility to a file and send both the file and the product code to NAG.
A short term (demonstration or trial) license key contains one or more lines like the following:
FLL6A22DH TRIAL 2010/11/12 "EMnxidA3oeoj0F1Yvi5ibxPjB7"Specifically, it has a line containing the word TRIAL. Longer term license keys must be locked to a specific computer, i.e. they will enable the software on one computer only. These license keys include the word NODE instead of the word TRIAL above.
Once you have obtained one of the above license keys, store the text of it in a file, say
[INSTALL_DIR]/license.lic.The location of the license file must be made known to the NAG application by setting the environment variable NAG_KUSARI_FILE to the full pathname of the file before the application is invoked.
For example, in the C-shell, type:
setenv NAG_KUSARI_FILE [INSTALL_DIR]/license.licor in the Bourne shell, type:
NAG_KUSARI_FILE=[INSTALL_DIR]/license.lic export NAG_KUSARI_FILE
Further details about Kusari and how it may be configured to suit your local circumstances (e.g. how to install the license key on a server) are included in the Kusari License Management documentation in the license/doc/ subdirectory of the software distribution. See also the Kusari FAQ: http://www.nag.co.uk/Kusari/kusari_faq.html.
The following material should also be made accessible to users:
The nagdoc_fl22 directory contains the Library Manual. This should be made available to users.
libnag_nag.a libnag_nag.so libnag_acml.a libnag_acml.so ACML libraries supplied by NAGinterface block files:
nag_interface_blocks/*example program material:
examples/source/??????e.f examples/data/??????e.d examples/results/??????e.r scripts/nag_example*
Note that the example material has been adapted, if necessary, from that published in the Library Manual, so that programs are suitable for execution with this implementation with no further changes (but see Section 3.3 of the Users' Note for comments about possible differences in results obtained). Making the example material directly available to users provides them with easily adaptable templates for their own problems.
./test_interface_blocksThis script tests the compatibility with the installed gfortran compiler of the compiled interface blocks provided. If an error message of the form
Fatal Error: Parse error when checking module version for file 'nag_f77_d_chapter.mod' opened at (1)is generated, please run recompile_interface_blocks as follows:
./recompile_interface_blocksThis script recompiles the interface blocks using the installed compiler and produces interface blocks suitable for use with that compiler, as well as keeping the distributed versions in [INSTALL_DIR]/old_interface_blocks. Then run test_interface_blocks again to confirm compatibilty.
