Whenever the NAG fl90 has been supplied in compiled form, that form is considered to be the standard library file. The use of all supplied software must be in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Software Licence signed by NAG and each site. Any request to use NAG software on a computer other than the one licensed must be referred to NAG (see Section 6).
This implementation is a compiled, tested, ready-to-use version of NAG fl90 that is considered suitable for operation on the computer systems detailed below:
hardware: 32-bit Intel systems and compatible operating system: Windows NT/2000/XP Fortran compiler: Compaq Visual Fortran version 6.5 (update A) and compatible
For information about implementations of NAG fl90 for use on other computer systems please contact NAG.
This implementation was produced at NAG Ltd., Oxford on the computing system detailed below:
hardware: Dell NOTEBOOK CPtC400D operating system: Windows NT v4.00.1381 Fortran compiler: Compaq Visual Fortran version 6.6 (update B) compiler options: /nodebug /bintext:"NAG Copyright 2001-" utilities: Intel MKL library, version 5.2
The entire NAG fl90 library, Release 4, was compiled with full optimization (/optimize:5), except for the following underlying procedures which had to be compiled at lesser optimization levels:
f11aza_9d (/optimize:0) f11cza_9d (/optimize:0) e02ahz_7d (/optimize:4)

nagfl90_noblas.lib and nagfl90_dll_noblas.dll do not contain the NAG version of Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) nor the linear algebra functions (LAPACK). They have been tested with the BLAS/LAPACK provided by the Intel ® Math Kernel Library 5.2 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).

To install the Library insert the CD into your CD drive to display
the NAG Library Setup Menu. If the Setup Menu does not display,
Installation of the Library requires a license key, which will be provided by NAG. This will either be a "Trial" key, which will allow you to try out the library for a limited period of time, or a "Fully Paid" key which enables use of the library indefinitely on a specific workstation. If you do not have a key, Installer will generate a file (usually saved as C:\NagKeyRqst.txt), which may be E-mailed or faxed to NAG (see Appendix). In return NAG will send you a valid license key.
Should you need to re-install the license key, (for example to replace a
trial key), locate and run the utility
Once in possession of a valid license key, begin the installation process again. You will be prompted for the license key. Once this has been entered the process will continue.
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.
This shortcut is placed in the Start Menu under
Start|Programs|Numerical Algorithms Group|FN04|NAG fl90 Library - CVF compiler. Command Prompt
The local environment variable NAGFNDIR is needed by the batch files nagex.bat, nagex_dll.bat, nagex_noblas.bat and nagex_dll_noblas.bat (see Section 3.2 of the Users' Note (un.html)).

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.
The two scripts nagex_noblas.bat and nagex_dll_noblas.bat use the MKL provided with this implementation (version 5.2). If you have another version of MKL and would like to use it in place of the MKL provided, you need to modify the two batch files 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.
The following material should also be made accessible to users:
The FN04\Manual folder contains the online documentation.

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 with no further changes. Making the example material directly available to users provides them with easily adaptable templates for their own problems.
Each supported NAG fl90 Library site is ordinarily provided with a printed copy of the NAG fl90 Library Introductory Guide. Additional documentation is available for purchase; please refer to the NAG websites or contact your local NAG Response Centre for current prices (see Section 6).
Online documentation is bundled with this implementation. Please see Section 4.2.
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 please quote your NAG site reference and NAG product code (in this case FNW3204DDL).
The NAG websites provide information about implementation availability, descriptions of products, downloadable software, product documentation and technical reports. The NAG websites can be accessed at
