This implementation has been tested at NAG Ltd., Oxford on the computing systems detailed below:
hardware: Apple MacPro4.1 - 2x2.26GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon operating system: Mac OS X version 10.6.7 Darwin Kernel Version 10.7.0 Fortran compiler: Intel(R) Fortran Intel(R) 64 Compiler XE for applications running on Intel(R) 64, Version 126.96.36.199 Build 20110503and
hardware: Apple MacPro4.1 - 2x2.26GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon operating system: Mac OS X version 10.6.8 Darwin Kernel Version 10.8.0 Fortran compiler: Intel(R) Fortran Intel(R) 64 Compiler XE for applications running on Intel(R) 64, Version 12.1.0.038 Build 20110811and
hardware: Apple iMac5.1 - 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo operating system: Mac OS X version 10.5.8 Darwin Kernel Version 9.8.0 Fortran compiler: Intel(R) Fortran Intel(R) 64 Compiler Professional for applications running on Intel(R) 64, Version 11.1 Build 20100203 Package ID: m_cprof_p_11.1.084The NAG Fortran Library, Mark 23, was compiled with the highest level of optimization that enabled the functionality provided by the library to be verified and validated.
This library has been tested using the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) and Linear Algebra PACKage (LAPACK) routines provided by NAG (see the Chapter Introductions for F06, F07, F08 and F16 in the NAG Mark 23 Library Manual, which we will refer to as the Library Manual).
The library has also been tested with the Intel ® Math Kernel Library 10.3 Update 1 for Mac OS X supplied as part of the Intel composerxe-2011.1.122 Compiler XE 12.0 Update 1 for Mac OS X. The required libraries of the Math Kernel Library (MKL) are supplied as a part of this product (see Section 3.1). Please see the Intel website for further information about MKL (https://software.intel.com/intel-mkl).

libnag_mkl.a and libnag_mkl.dylib do not contain the NAG version of Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) nor the linear algebra functions (LAPACK).

The files require approximately the following disk space:
Library software: 419 MB Library Manual: 246 MB
If you have downloaded the Library materials from our web, double click on FLMI623DCL.dmg. This will extract the two packages FLMI623DCL.pkg and "NAG Fortran Library Manual, Mark 23.pkg" in addition to the files in.html, un.html and License Installer.app.
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/flmi623dcl 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 several 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 install the Library manual, double click on "NAG Fortran Library Manual, Mark 23.pkg".
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:
FLMI623DC TRIAL 2011/06/06 "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 contained in a text file consisting of details of the software that will be enabled.
License key request and installation is performed through the Apple Installer when flmi623dcl.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 it MUST be installed by running the license installer License Installer.app. By default, the license installer will save the license key in /opt/NAG/nag.key (prepends the file if it exists). The 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 license installer again.
Further details about Kusari and how it may be configured to suit your local circumstances (e.g. how to install the license key on a server) are included in the Kusari License Management documentation in the license/doc/ subdirectory of the software distribution. See also the Kusari FAQ: http://www.nag.co.uk/Kusari/kusari_faq.html.
The following material should also be made accessible to users:
The nagdoc_fl23 directory contains the Library Manual.
libnag_nag.a libnag_nag.dylib libnag_mkl.a libnag_mkl.dylib MKL libraries supplied by NAGinterface block files:
nag_interface_blocks/*example program material:
examples/source/??????e.f90 examples/data/??????e.d examples/data/??????e.opt 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 3.3 of the Users' Note 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 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 or account no. and NAG product code (in this case FLMI623DCL).
