Your attention is drawn to the terms and conditions of the Software License regarding the use of NAG software. Any request to use this software other than on the licensed computer must be referred to NAG, as should requests for information about the availability of other implementations.
This implementation is a compiled, tested, ready-to-use version of the NAG C Library that is considered suitable for operation on the computer systems detailed below:
hardware: Intel-based Mac systems or compatible operating system: Mac OS X version 10.4 (Tiger) and compatible C compiler: Gnu C Compiler, supplied in the Developer Tools or compatible
This implementation was produced at NAG Ltd., Oxford on the computing system detailed below:
hardware: Apple Mac Mini operating system: Mac OS X version 10.4.9 (Tiger) Darwin Kernel Version 8.11.1 C compiler: i686-apple-darwin8-gcc-4.0.1 (GCC) 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5370)
This implementation has also been tested on the same hardware, using the software system detailed below:
hardware: Apple Mac Mini operating system: Mac OS X version 10.5.1 (Leopard) Darwin Kernel Version 9.1.0 C compiler: i686-apple-darwin8-gcc-4.0.1 (GCC) 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5465)
The entire NAG C Library, Mark 8, was compiled with compiler optimization -O3.
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, f08 and f16 in the NAG C Library Manual).
The library has also been tested with the Apple Computer's vecLib version 3.3.1.

By default, the Library Software will be installed in /opt/NAG/. As the installer, you may wish to choose a different location. In this document we refer to the directory /opt/NAG/clmin08dgl or the directory specified by the installer as [INSTALL_DIR].
The directory [INSTALL_DIR] is referenced 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 the installer moves the library to some other location then these scripts must be changed to reflect that fact.
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.
By default, the Library Manual will be installed in /opt/NAG/ however it can be installed to some other location of the installer's choice. For example you may wish to install the Library Manual in the same location as that for other NAG products. You are encouraged to make it readily available to users.
A short term (demonstration or trial) license key contains one or more lines like the following:
CLMIN08DG TRIAL 2007/10/12 "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.
In order to enable the software, NAG will issue you with a license key. The license key is a simple text file containing details of the software that will be enabled.
License key request and installation is performed through the Apple Installer when clmin08dal.pkg 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 via fax or e-mail.
Once you have obtained one of the above license keys you can enter it into the installer. By default, the installer will save the license key in /opt/NAG/nag.key (prepend the file if it exists). The C Library will then validate the license at runtime.
If you need to update or change the license key after installation, we recommend that you run the installer again.
Further details about Kusari and how it may be configured to suit your local circumstances are included in the Kusari License Management documentation in the license/doc/ subdirectory of the installation directory [INSTALL_DIR] (see Section 3.1).
The following material should also be made accessible to users:
The nagdoc_cl08 directory contains the Library Manual. This should be made available to users, in addition to the following:
libnagc_nag.a libnagc_nag.dylib libnagc_vl.a libnagc_vl.dylibInclude files:
include/*.hexample program material:
examples/source/??????e.c examples/data/??????e.d examples/results/??????e.r scripts/nagc_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 4.3.1 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.
The installer should ensure that the advice given to users in Section 3.1 of the Users' Note (un.html) is suitable for the installation. This can be done by running a few example programs following that advice. The installation can also be tested using the scripts nagc_example*.
On-line documentation is bundled with this implementation. Please see Section 4. See Section 3.1 for the location of the online help files in HTML, PDF and XHTML formats.
