.SH "Introduction"
This document is essential reading for every user of the NAG fl90
implementation specified in the title. It provides implementation-specific
detail that augments the information provided in the NAG fl90 Manual.
NAG recommends that users read the following minimum reference material before
calling any library procedure:
.in +5
.ti -4
(a) Essential Introduction
.ti -4
(b) Chapter Introduction
.ti -4
(c) Module Document
.ti -4
(d) Implementation-specific Users' Note
.in -5
Items (a), (b) and (c) are included in the NAG fl90 Manual; item (d) is this
document. Each NAG fl90 site is supplied with at least one copy of each of the
above.
Items (a) and (d) are provided in man page form.
.SH "General Information"
.SS "Accessing the Library"
Assuming that libnagfl90.a has been installed in /usr/local/lib, /usr/lib or
/lib, and that the module information files have been moved to
/usr/local/lib/fl90_modules, then a user may link to NAG fl90 in the
following manner:
f90 -I/usr/local/lib/fl90_modules driver.f90 -lnagfl90
where driver.f90 is the user's application program.
.SS "Example Programs"
The example programs, data and the results obtained during the preparation of
this specific implementation are supplied so you can try them yourself, or use
one as a template for your own program. Note that the example material has been
adapted, if necessary, from that printed in the NAG fl90 Manual, so that
programs are suitable for execution with this implementation.
The example programs are most easily accessed by the command nagexample,
which will provide you with a copy of an example program (and its data, if
any), compile the program and link it with the library (showing you the
compile command so that you can recompile your own version of the program).
Finally, the executable program will be run, presenting its output to
stdout. The example program concerned is specified by the argument to
nagexample, e.g.
nagexample nag_lib_support_ex01
will copy the example program into the file nag_lib_support_ex01.f90 in the
current directory and process it to produce the example program results.
Further usage details may be obtained by issuing the command nagexample
without arguments.
