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: x64 systems (AMD64 and Intel EM64T) and compatible operating system: Windows XP/2003/Vista x64 Edition C compiler: Microsoft Visual C++ .NET 2005 (Release 8.0)
The DLL version has some restrictions on I/O when used with a C compiler other than Microsoft Visual C++ .NET Release 8.0, please see below.
This implementation was produced at NAG Ltd., Oxford on the computing system detailed below:
hardware: AMD64 operating system: Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 Edition SP1 C compiler: Microsoft Visual C/C++ Version 8.0
The DLL files in this implementation were created using the Microsoft Visual C++ .NET Release 8.0 linker and C run time libraries on a Windows 2003 system. Hence these DLLs are linked with MSVCR80.DLL. The manifest file is compiled into the DLLs creating a dependency on version '8.0.50608.0' of the C run time library. The redistributable versions of these Microsoft Visual C++ .NET Release 8.0 run time libraries are included in this product in the bin folder.
All the libraries in this distribution have been tested on Windows 2003 with
A more detailed description of this problem may be found on the NAG web site at http://www.nag.co.uk/numeric/CL/CDLLmanifest.asp.
These problems are not found in the static versions of the NAG C Library.
The entire NAG C Library, Mark 8, was compiled with compiler optimization /O2, except d01apxt(/O1), d01spxt(/O1), d02pvct(/Od), d02pvyt(/O1), d01ajyt(/O1), d01ajyn(/O1), f01lzxn(/O1), f01lzxt(/O1), f08befn(/Od), g03aact(/O1) and g03bcct(/Od).
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 C Library Manual).
The library has also been tested with ACML Version 3.6.0. The ACML Version 3.6.0 libraries are supplied as a part of this product (see contents).

nagc_nag_MT.lib is a static library that includes NAG BLAS/LAPACK. nagc_acml_MT.lib is a static library that does not include BLAS/LAPACK. Both libraries have been compiled with the /MT option to link with the static multi-threaded C run time library. This option must be used when compiling applications to be linked with either of these libraries to ensure linking to the correct C run time libraries.
CLW6A08DA_nag.lib is a DLL import library that includes NAG BLAS/LAPACK. CLW6A08DA_acml.lib is a DLL import library that does not include BLAS/LAPACK. Both libraries have been compiled with the /MD option to link with the multi-threaded DLL C run time library. This option must be used when compiling applications to be linked with either of these libraries to ensure linking to the correct C run time libraries.
nagc_nag_MD.lib is an alternate version of the static library that includes NAG BLAS/LAPACK and is compiled with the /MD option. It is provided for applications which require the multi-threaded DLL C run time library to be used. There is no ACML version of this library.

If you have the Library materials on CD, insert the CD into your CD
drive to display the NAG CD browser. Click on the
e:\Demo32 C_Library_Browser.dbdto run the browser, or run e:\setup.exe to run the Library installation directly, where e is the drive letter for your CD drive.
If you have downloaded the Library materials from our website, run the self-extracting executable to start the Library installation. The Library Manual materials are available as a separate download.
After installation, you should ensure that the software described in Section 3.1 is present and accessible.
If your machine has more than one processor, then it is recommended that you set the environment variable OMP_NUM_THREADS to the number of available processors, e.g.
set OMP_NUM_THREADS=2This will enable the ACML BLAS to make use of the extra processor(s) and will thus speed up the computation of many of the Library procedures.
The installation procedure will create a shortcut which starts a Command Prompt with the required local environment variables. The default location of this shortcut is in the Start Menu under
Start|All Programs|NAG|CL08|NAG C Library - Microsoft C++ (CLW6A08DAL). Command Prompt
The local environment variable NAG_CLW6A08DAL is needed by the batch files nagc_example_*.bat (see Section 3.1.1. of the Users' Note (un.html)).
The installation procedure also creates a shortcut on the Start Menu to the Users' Note, which by default is located under
Start|All Programs|NAG|CL08|NAG C Library - Microsoft C++ (CLW6A08DAL). Users' Note
This software is provided with an uninstallation facility via
Control Panel|Add or Remove Programs
Alternatively you could run the setup program again and select the Remove option.
If it is planned to use Microsoft Visual Studio to build programs that use the NAG C Library, each user should set the appropriate options. Detailed advice on using Visual Studio may be found in the Users' Note Section 3.1.2.
If you have the Library materials on CD, insert the CD into your CD
drive to display the NAG CD browser. Click on the
e:\Demo32 C_Library_Browser.dbdto run the browser, or run e:\setup_cl08_manual.exe to run the Library manual installation directly, where e is the drive letter for your CD drive.
If you have downloaded the Library Manual materials from our website, run the self-extracting executable to start the Library Manual installation.
The installation will create a shortcut to the main index file for the manual. The default location of this shortcut is in the Start Menu under
