nag_nag.lib is a compiled library including NAG BLAS/LAPACK nag_mkl.lib is a compiled library without NAG BLAS/LAPACK (MKL must be used with this library)
nag_mkl.lib does not contain the NAG version of Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) nor the linear algebra functions (LAPACK). It has been tested with the BLAS/LAPACK provided by the Intel ® Math Kernel Library 8.0 for Windows (MKL) which is included in this product. Please see the Intel web site for further information about MKL (http://www.intel.com/software/products/mkl).
The following shows the folder/file organization of the Library

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|Programs|NAG|FL21|NAG Fortran Library - Intel Visual Fortran compiler. Command Prompt
The local environment variable NAG_FLW3221DCL is needed by the batch files nag_example.bat and nag_example_mkl.bat (see Section 3.2 of the Users' Note (un.html)).
This software is provided with an uninstallation facility via
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.
You may wish to move the PDF documentation files to the same location as that for other NAG products. You are encouraged to make them readily available to users, but in such a way that they are not generally accessible from outside your site.
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 FLW3221DCL), 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:
FLW3221DC 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
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\flw3221dcl\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:
lib\nag_nag.lib lib\nag_mkl.lib MKL_ia32_8.0\lib\*.libmodule information files:
nag_interface_blocks\*.mod nag_interface_blocks\*.f90example program material:
examples\source\*.f examples\data\*.d examples\results\*.r batch\nag_example*
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). 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 batch files nag_example.bat and nag_example_mkl.bat.
The script nag_example_mkl.bat uses the MKL provided with this implementation (version 8.0). If you have another version of MKL and would like to use it in place of the MKL provided, you need to modify the batch file and both the PATH and LIB environment variables to reflect your MKL version and installation. The advice given to users in Section 3.1 of the Users' Note (un.html) may need updating.
On-line documentation is bundled with this implementation. Please see Section 4.
