hardware: Apple Mac Mini operating system: Max OS X version 10.5.1 Darwin Kernel Version 9.1.0 Fortran compiler: same as above
The entire NAG Fortran Library, Mark 21, was compiled with full optimization (-O) except for the following source files which had to be compiles with (-O0):
d01fcfn.f d01eazn.f d06aapn.f d06aaqn.f e04uhvn.f
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 Mark 21 Library Manual, which we will refer to as the Library Manual).
The library has also been tested with the Apple Computer's vecLib version 3.3.1.

libnag_vl.a and libnag_vl.dylib do not contain the NAG version of Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) nor the linear algebra functions (LAPACK). Both have been tested with the BLAS/LAPACK provided by the Apple Computer's vecLib version 3.3.1.

By default, the Library Software will be installed in /opt/NAG/. As the installer, you may wish to choose a different location. In this document we refer to the directory /opt/NAG/flmin21d9l or the directory specified by the installer as [INSTALL_DIR].
The directory [INSTALL_DIR] is referenced in the Users' Note (un.html).
The directory [INSTALL_DIR]/scripts contains one or more scripts to show how to use the libraries provided with this implementation. See Users' Note, Example Programs. Subsequent to the installation, if the installer moves the library to some other location then these scripts must be changed to reflect that fact.
To simplify access to the libraries you may wish to create symbolic links in a system location such as /usr/lib pointing at the installed libraries. They would then be in the default search path of the linker during the link phase, and be available for execution at run time.
The NAG Fortran Library Interface Blocks define the type and arguments of each user callable NAG Fortran Library routine. These are not 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 (nag_interface_blocks/*) are supplied in both source form and pre-compiled module form.
The -Ipathname option should then be specified on each f90/f95 invocation (where pathname is [INSTALL_DIR]/nag_interface_blocks) to tell the compiler where to find the modules.
By default, the Library Manual will be installed in /opt/NAG/ however it can be installed to some other location of the installer's choice. For example you may wish to install the Library Manual in the same location as that for other NAG products. You are encouraged to make it readily available to users.
A short term (demonstration or trial) license key contains one or more lines like the following:
FLMIN21D9 TRIAL 2007/11/12 "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.
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 flmin21d9l.pkg is installed. During installation, you will be prompted for a license key. If you do not have a license key, a request form will be generated for you to complete and send to NAG via fax or e-mail.
Once you have obtained one of the above license keys you can enter it into the installer. By default, the installer will save the license key in /opt/NAG/nag.key (prepend the file if it exists). The Fortran Library will then validate the license at runtime.
If you need to update or change the license key after installation, we recommend that you run the installer again.
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 installation directory [INSTALL_DIR] (see Section 3.1).
The following material should also be made accessible to users:
The nagdoc_mk21 directory contains the Library Manual. This should be made available to users.
libnag_nag.a libnag_nag.dylib libnag_vl.a libnag_vl.dylibinterface block files:
nag_interface_blocks/*example program material:
examples/source/??????e.f examples/data/??????e.d examples/results/??????e.r scripts/nag_example*
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 3.1 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 scripts nag_example*.
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 FLMIN21D9L).
