Whenever the NAG Parallel Library has been supplied in compiled form, that form is considered to be the standard library file. 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 (see Section 6).
This implementation is a compiled, tested, ready-to-use version of the NAG Parallel Library that is considered suitable for operation on the computer systems detailed below:
hardware: IBM Power4 64-bit systems or compatible operating system: AIX v5.3 or compatible Fortran compiler: XL Fortran v9.1 or compatible MPI: IBM Parallel Operating Environment v4.1.1 or compatible
For information about implementations of the NAG Parallel Library for use on other computer systems please contact NAG.
This implementation was produced at NAG Ltd., Oxford on the computing system detailed below:
hardware: IBM RS/6000 eServer p5 550 operating system: AIX v5.3 Fortran compiler: XL Fortran v18.104.22.168 compiler options: -qarch=pwr4 -q64 -u -qsave -qthreaded \ -qxlf77=nopersistent:leadzero -O3 -qstrict AND compiler options: -qarch=pwr4 -q64 -u -qsave -qthreaded \ -qxlf77=nopersistent:leadzero -O3 -qstrict -qextname C compiler: XL C v22.214.171.124 compiler options: -qarch=pwr4 -q64 -O3 -qstrict MPI: IBM Parallel Operating Environment v4.1.10 BLAS: IBM ESSL v126.96.36.199
Two archive libraries are supplied, libnagmpi.a and libnagmpi_sup.a. The two libraries also support the -qextname option of the Fortran compiler.
The supplied archive library libnagmpi.a includes the Fortran MPI version of the Basic Linear Algebra Communication Subprograms (BLACS v1.1, with patch03 dated February 24, 2000). Both libraries were compiled with full optimization (-O3 -qstrict).
This implementation has been tested using the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) provided in ESSL v188.8.131.52.
For further details, refer to other documentation supplied or contact NAG (see Section 6).

compiled libraries, libnagmpi.a: 10.3 Mb libnagmpi_sup.a 0.6 Mb example program material: 0.7 Mb documentation files: 0.1 Mb
To install all material use the Unix tar utility, e.g.
tar xvf /cdrom/fd03.tar(assuming the CD-ROM has been mounted as /cdrom).
Links to the object libraries libnagmpi.a and libnagmpi_sup.a may be placed in a directory, such as /usr/lib, in the default search path of the linker so that linkage is convenient.
The script nagmpiexample is intended to provide users with a simple means of access to the example material. It will require some minor edits to reflect the local installation and should be placed in a directory, such as /usr/local/bin, which is on users' execution search paths.
For example, give the command
nagmpiexample f04ebfpto run the F04EBFP example program. Almost all the example programs have 4 processes. nagmpiexample uses poe(1) to run all these processes on the hosts specified in the file ./host.list
The following material should also be made accessible to users:
other library documentation (see Section 5)
libnagmpi.a libnagmpi_sup.aexample program material:
examples/source/*e.f examples/data/*e.d examples/results/*e.r scripts/nagmpiexample
Making the supplied example material directly available to users provides them with easily adaptable templates for their own problems.
On-line documentation is bundled with this implementation. Please see Section 4.
The NAG Response Centres are available for general enquiries from all users and also for technical queries from sites with an annually licensed product or support service.
The Response Centres are open during office hours, but contact is possible by fax, email and phone (answering machine) at all times.
When contacting a Response Centre, it helps us deal with your enquiry quickly if you can quote your NAG site reference and NAG product code (in this case FDAI603DA).
