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 Fortran_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 Intel MKL 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|FL21|NAG Fortran Library DLLs. Command Prompt
The local environment variable NAG_FLDLL214ZL is needed by the batch files nag_example.bat and nag_example_mkl.bat (see Section 4.3 of the Users' Note (un.html)).
The interface block files are supplied in both source form and pre-compiled module form. The location of the interface block files is added to the local INCLUDE environment variable by running the batch file envvars.bat. It may also have been set globally as part of the installation procedure. This is needed so that the compiler can access the modules at the compilation stage.
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|FL21|NAG Fortran Library DLLs. Users' Note
There is also a shortcut to the diagnostic program NAG_Fortran_DLL_info.exe under
Start|All Programs|NAG|FL21|NAG Fortran Library DLLs. Check Accessibility(see Section 4.3.3).
In addition, if the VB declare statements are installed, shortcuts are provided giving easy access to the declaration files. By default these are located under
Start|All Programs|NAG|FL21|NAG Fortran Library DLLs. VB6 Declare Statements Start|All Programs|NAG|FL21|NAG Fortran Library DLLs. VB.NET Declare Statements
Likewise, if the C and C++ header files are installed, a shortcut to a file which gives information on calling the the DLLs from C and C++ and includes links to the header files is provided. By default this is located under
Start|All Programs|NAG|FL21|NAG Fortran Library DLLs. C & C++ Header Files Information
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 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 Fortran_Library_Browser.dbdto run the browser, or run e:\setup_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
Start|All Programs|NAG|FL21|NAG Fortran Library Manual
Free copies of Adobe Acrobat Reader can be downloaded from http://www.adobe.com/. Please check this site for availability of a reader for your platform.
Please note that if you are using Adobe Acrobat 4.0 or earlier you might experience some problems when printing documents that contain mathematical characters, such as integral signs, square roots and large brackets. These characters will print correctly using Adobe Acrobat 5.0.
The HTML form of the Essential Introduction contains some mathematical characters that are displayed as question marks by releases of Netscape earlier than 6, but these are displayed correctly by Netscape 6 and Internet Explorer. They may also be viewed via the PDF.
If using Netscape, it might be necessary to re-install Acrobat to ensure that the Acrobat plug-in has been installed. If the plug-in has not been installed, Netscape may copy PDF files to a temporary folder, and then not be able to navigate from there.

In order to enable the software, NAG will issue you with a license key. The license key is contained in a text file consisting of details of the software that will be enabled.
To request a license key, run the program khostid located in the license\bin\w32\ subdirectory of the software distribution. This utility must be run from a command prompt. Return the information that it displays, together with the product code (in this case FLDLL214Z), by e-mail (or FAX) to NAG. Alternatively, direct the output from this utility to a file and send both the file and the product code to NAG.
A short term (demonstration or trial) license key contains one or more lines like the following:
FLDLL214Z TRIAL 2006/11/12 "EMnxidA3oeoj0F1Yvi5ibxPjB7"Specifically, it has a line containing the word TRIAL. Longer term 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 word NODE instead of the word TRIAL above.
Once you have obtained one of the above license keys, store the text of it in a file, say
[INSTALL_DIR]\license.lic.The location of the license file must be made known to the NAG application by setting the environment variable NAG_KUSARI_FILE to the full pathname of the file before the application is invoked.
The environment variable may be set as follows:
c:\Program Files\NAG\FL21\fldll214zl\license.licas the value.
Further details about Kusari and how it may be configured to suit your local circumstances are included in the Kusari License Management documentation in the license\doc\ subdirectory of the software distribution.
The following material should also be made accessible to users:
The FL21\manual folder contains the online documentation. This should be made available to users, in addition to the following:

Note that the example material has been adapted, if necessary, from that published in the 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). Making the example material directly available to users provides them with easily adaptable templates for their own problems.
The installer should ensure that the advice given to users in Section 4.1 of the Users' Note (un.html) is suitable for the installation. This can be done by running a few example programs following that advice. The installation can also be tested using the batch files nag_example*.bat.
Alternatively, run the diagnostic program NAG_Fortran_DLL_info.exe which itself calls A00AAF (see Section 4.3.3).
Start|All Programs|NAG|FL21|NAG Fortran Library DLLs. Check Accessibilityshortcut on the Start Menu, the DLLs will be found if the global PATH environment variable has been set to include their location. If it is run from a Command Prompt window, then the environment local to that window will prevail. (See Section 4.1 of the Users' Note for more information on environment variables.)
For each of the DLLs that it loads successfully, NAG_Fortran_DLL_info.exe will print the location of the DLL, and the implementation details as provided by a call to the routine A00AAF. It also calls A00ACF to check the availability of a valid license key if required by the implementation and reports if this is not found; "Status OK" indicates that a valid key was either found or not required.
On-line documentation is bundled with this implementation. Please see Section 4.
