NAG Fortran Compiler Release 5.2 - README file NPMI652NA

  This is the README file for the NAG Fortran Compiler Release 5.2.
(For Mac systems)

1. Installation

   You will need to be logged in as root to complete the installation process.

   Double-click on the compiler package (NPMI652NA.pkg) to start the
   installation process.

   The installation may be tested by compiling and running the utility
   program f90_util.f90, which is provided in the same directory as the
   compiler library files (/usr/local/lib/NAG_Fortran).

   To compile and link this program, open located in the
   Utilities sub-folder of the Applications folder.
   At the shell prompt, type

  nagfor -o f90_util /usr/local/lib/NAG_Fortran/f90_util.f90

   The compiled program (f90_util) may now be run by typing


2. Licensing

   NAG Fortran is a licence-managed product using Kusari.

   License key request and installation is performed through the Apple
   Installer when NAG Fortran is installed. During installation, you will be
   prompted for a license key. If you do not have a license key, a request
   form will be generated for you to complete and send to NAG by

   Once you have obtained a license key you can enter it into the installer.
   By default, the installer will save the license key in
   /usr/local/lib/NAG_Fortran/nag.licence. NAG Fortran will validate
   the license during compilation.

   If you need to update or change the license key after installation, we
   recommend that you run the installer again.

   KLICENCE contains further details about Kusari and how it may be configured
   to suit your local circumstances.

   The use of all supplied software must be in accordance with the terms and
   conditions of the Software Licence signed by NAG and each site.  Any request
   to use NAG software on a computer other than the one licensed must be
   referred to NAG.

3. Release Notes

   Brief notes on the differences between releases 5.1 and 5.2 of the NAG
   Fortran Compiler are in the file RELNOTES.txt in the doc subdirectory.  The
   release notes are given in full in PDF (doc/RELNOTES.pdf) and HTML

4. Documentation

   Documentation is provided in both HTML (in the html subdirectory)
   and PDF (in the doc subdirectory).  The complete Compiler Manual in
