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. In particular, users must not have free access to the text of the library routines. 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: Hewlett Packard PA-RISC 1.1 machines operating system: HP-UX 11 or compatible Fortran compiler: HP F90 v2.4 or compatible C compiler: The HP C Compiler and run-time libraries must be installed if source is to be recompiled MPI: HP MPI
If a different implementation of MPI is installed, the BLACS libraries may have to be built from the sources supplied, with suitable options set in the file Bmake.inc.
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: Hewlett Packard 9000 K460-EG operating system: HP-UX B.11.00 Fortran compiler: HP F90 v2.4 compiler options: +DAportable C compiler: HP C Compiler (ANSI) HP92453-01 A.11.01.00 compiler options: +DAportable MPI: HP MPI 1.5.1
The entire NAG Parallel Library, Release 3, was compiled with full optimization (+O3 +Oall +Odataprefetch).
This implementation has been tested using the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) from the following sources:

compiled libraries, libnagmpi.a: 5.8 Mb libnagmpiblas.a: 0.5 Mb example program material: 0.9 Mb documentation files: 0.1 Mb scripts: 0.1 Mb library source code: 9.9 Mb (not needed on disk permanently)
To install all material (including source), use the Unix tar utility, e.g.
tar xvf /cdrom/fd03.tar(assuming the CD-ROM has been mounted as /cdrom).
The source code should be needed only for reference by whoever is responsible for the installation of the library. It should not be made available to users. The include files are required only if the source code is to be recompiled.
If the HP BLAS library is installed (usually as /opt/fortran90/lib/libblas.a), libnagmpiblas.a may be deleted. Otherwise the setting of the variables LINKLIBS and nagmpilink, in scripts/langopts and scripts/nagmpiexample respectively, must be modifed to refer to libnagmpiblas.a.
A link to the object library libnagmpi.a (and libnagmpiblas.a, if required) 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 the mpirun command to run all these processes on the current host (unless otherwise specified in mpirun's environment variables).
The following material should also be made accessible to users:
other library documentation (see Section 5)
libnagmpi.a libnagmpiblas.a (if required)example 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 also provided, in PDF form, with this implementation. Please see the Readme file on the distribution medium for further information.
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 please quote your NAG site reference and NAG product code (in this case FDH9703DM).
