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: Apple G4/G5 Power Macintosh operating system: Mac OS X 10.3.9, Mac OS X 10.4.5 Fortran compiler: GNU g77 3.4.5 (needs linker found in cctools-528.5.dmg or later see ftp://gcc.gnu.org/pub/gcc/infrastructure/) C compiler: Apple bundled gcc compiler (4.0.0 or 3.3) or FSF gcc 3.4.5 or FSF gcc 4.0.2 or IBM XLC compiler 6.0 and compatible compilers MPI: MPICH2 version 1.0.3 compatible
If a different implementation of MPI is installed, the supplied BLACS libraries may have to be rebuilt with different options set in the file Bmake.inc. The objects in these libraries should be placed in the main NAG Parallel Library archive (libnagmpi.a).
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: Power Mac G4, 2 CPUs, PowerPC G4 500MHz operating system: Mac OS X 10.3.9 Fortran compiler: FSF g77 3.4.5 (needed linker found in cctools-528.5.dmg) compiler options: -fno-globals -fno-f90 -ftypeless-boz -mcpu=G4 -O4 C compiler: FSF gcc 3.4.5 compiler options: -Df77IsF2C -fPIC -D_REENTRANT -fno-common -O4 -mcpu=G4 MPI: MPICH2 version 1.0.3and was also tested on
hardware: Power Mac G5, 2 CPUs, PowerPC G5 2.3GHz operating system: Mac OS X 10.4.5 Fortran compiler: FSF g77 3.4.5 FSF gfortran 4.0.2 NAGWare f95 Release 5.0 C compiler: FSF gcc 3.4.5 FSF gcc 4.0.2 Apple gcc 4.0.0 IBM XLC 6.0 MPI: MPICH2 version 1.0.3
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).
The entire NAG Parallel Library, Release 3, was compiled with full optimization (-O4).
This implementation has been tested using the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS), contained in archive libnagmpiblas.a, and the Basic Linear Algebra Communication Subprograms (BLACS), contained in archive libnagmpi.a, provided by NAG. It has also been tested with the ATLAS BLAS library version 3.4.1.
For further details, refer to other documentation supplied or contact NAG (see Section 6).

compiled libraries, libnagmpi.a: 3.1 Mb libnagmpiblas.a: 0.2 Mb include file fd03.h: 0.1 Mb example program material: 1.4 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).
A link to the object library libnagmpi.a should be placed in a directory, such
as /usr/lib, in the default search path of the linker so that linkage is
The object library libnagmpiblas.a is a subset of the BLAS required by the NAG Parallel Library. It is required only if another BLAS library is not available, in which case a similar link to libnagmpiblas.a should be created.
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. The script nagmpicexample shows how to link and execute a C program calling the library.
For example, give the command
nagmpiexample f04ebfpto run the F04EBFP example program. This will place the results in the file f04ebfpe.r. You can create alternative versions of the script to suit different environments, for instance, alternative MPI implementations, alternative compilers and alternative BLAS libraries.
The following material should also be made accessible to users:

Making the supplied example material directly available to users provides them with easily adaptable templates for their own problems.
On-line documentation is provided, in PDF form, with this implementation. Please see the Readme file on the distribution medium for further information.
