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 Fortran Library that is considered suitable for operation on the computer systems detailed below:
hardware: Apple PowerPC G4 operating system: Mac OS X 10.3.4 and compatible Fortran compiler: NAGWare f95 release 5.0 and compatible
This implementation was produced at NAG Ltd., Oxford on the computing system detailed below:
hardware: Apple PowerPC G4 operating system: Mac OS X 10.3.4 (Panther) Fortran compiler: NAGWare f95 release 5.0(378) compiler options: -w -PIC -ieee=full
The entire NAG Fortran Library, Mark 21, was compiled with compiler optimization (-O4), except for the following routines, which had to be compiled at lesser optimization levels:
d02bgfn.f (-O2) d02tgzn.f (-O2) f11dayn.f (-O0) g13dnfn.f (-O2) s19abfn.f (-O0)
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 Fortran Library Manual).
The library has been also tested with the set of BLAS and LAPACK routines found in Apple Computer's vecLib version 3.0.1.

Double click on FLAMP21D9L.pkg to install the archive libraries, interface blocks, example programs, and example scripts.
Double click on "NAG Fortran Library Manual, Mark 21.pkg" to install the Library manual.
Double click on "FLEXlm 9.5.pkg" to install the FLEXlm binaries and documentation.
The NAG Fortran Library Interface Blocks define the type and arguments of each user callable NAG Fortran Library routine. These are not essential essential to calling the NAG Fortran Library from Fortran 90/95 programs. Their purpose is to allow the Fortran 90/95 compiler to check that NAG Fortran Library routines are called correctly.
The interface block files are supplied in both source form and pre-compiled module form.
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 FLAMP21DL.pkg is installed. If you do not have a license key, a request form may be optionally generated for you to complete and send to NAG via fax or e-mail.
A short term (demonstration or trial) license key contains one or more lines like the following:
FEATURE NAG_FL NAG 21.000 10-apr-2005 0 CBDA2041DC1BC45D2B68 "ANY" DEMOSpecifically, it has a line starting with the word FEATURE and is referred to here as an uncounted license key. Longer term uncounted 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 FLEXlm hostid of the computer instead of the word DEMO above.
Further details about FLEXlm and how it may be configured to suit your local circumstances are included in the FLEXlm End Users Guide, located in the directory /Library/Documentation/NAG/FLAMP21D9L/license after the FLEXlm binaries and documentation have been installed. These are not needed in most configurations.
Note that the example material has been adapted, if necessary, from that published in the NAG Fortran 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).
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 FLAMP21D9L).
