Your attention is drawn to the terms and conditions of the Software License Agreement (in file lic_agr.txt, see Section 3.1) regarding the use of NAG software. Requests for information about the availability of other implementations must be referred to NAG.
This implementation is a compiled, tested, ready-to-use version of the NAG Library for SMP & Multicore that is considered suitable for operation on the computer systems detailed below:
hardware: Intel64 and AMD64 systems operating system: Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 64-bit Fortran compiler: Intel(R) 64-bit Fortran Compiler version 12.1 and compatible (including ifort 11.1) Vendor library: Intel MKL version 10.3
This implementation was produced at NAG Ltd., Oxford on the computing system detailed below:
hardware: AMD Opteron (Barcelona) 2.6 GHz, 8.0 GB RAM operating system: Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 Edition Fortran compiler: Intel(R) Fortran Compiler ifort Version 188.8.131.52 Build 20110811 vendor library: Intel MKL version 10.3 compiler options: -Qopenmp -threads -auto -MD -Qprec -fpp -align -Qfnalign:16
It has also been tested on the same system with other versions of the Intel compiler:
Intel(R) Visual Fortran Compiler ifort Version 11.1.065 Build 20100414 Package ID: w_cprof_p_11.1.065 Intel(R) Visual Fortran Compiler Version 10.1 Build 20080602 Package ID: w_fc_p_10.1.024
N.B. for the tests with the Intel compiler version 10.1 it was necessary to recompile the module files in nag_interface_blocks as described in Section 3.3 of the Users' Note, because the distributed module files are incompatible with this compiler version. Also, with this compiler it is only possible to use the DLL version of the NAG Library unless you also have a later Intel compiler installed to get access to its static run-time libraries.
Each routine in the NAG Library for SMP & Multicore, Mark 23, was compiled with the highest level of optimization that enabled the functionality provided by the library to be verified and validated. Most routines in the library were compiled with optimization flags -O3 -QxSSE2; some routines will have been compiled with a lower level of optimization when necessary.

If you have the Library materials on CD, insert the CD into your CD drive to display the NAG CD browser. Click on the Install ... button and follow the instructions to install the Library and/or the manual. If the CD does not autorun, run
e:\NAG_Installation_browser.exeto run the browser, or run e:\fsw6i23dcl_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.
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|All Programs|NAG|FS23|NAG Library for SMP and Multicore (FSW6I23DCL) |FSW6I23DCL Command PromptThe local environment variable NAG_FSW6I23DCL is needed by the batch files nagsmp_example_static.bat and nagsmp_example_dll.bat (see Section 3.4 of the Users' Note (un.html)).
The NAG Library Interface Blocks define the type and arguments of each user callable NAG Library routine. These are not essential to calling the NAG Library from Fortran programs. Their purpose is to allow the Fortran compiler to check that NAG Library routines are called correctly.
The interface block files (nag_interface_blocks\*) are supplied in both source form and pre-compiled module form. (The source form is only required if the precompiled form is incompatible with the compiler in use.) The location of the interface block files is added to the local INCLUDE environment variable by running the batch file envvars.bat. It may also have been set globally as part of the installation procedure. This is needed so that the compiler can access the modules at the compilation stage.
The installation procedure also creates a shortcut on the Start Menu to the Users' Note, which by default is located under
Start|All Programs|NAG|FS23|NAG Library for SMP and Multicore (FSW6I23DCL) |Users' NoteThere is also a shortcut to the diagnostic program NAG_Fortran_DLL_info.exe under
Start|All Programs|NAG|FS23|NAG Library for SMP and Multicore (FSW6I23DCL) |Check NAG DLL Accessibility (FSW6I23DCL)(see Section 4.2.3).

If you use Internet Explorer as your web browser, you will require Design Science's MathPlayer plug-in in order to display the MathML mathematical expressions correctly for the XHTML/MathML version of the manual. At the end of the Library Manual installation there is an option to install MathPlayer. Selecting this option runs the MathPlayer 2.0b installation, which will install the MathPlayer files (approximately 2.4 Mb) under
C:\Program Files\Design Science
MathPlayer may be removed via
Control Panel|Add or Remove Programson Windows XP, or via
Control Panel|Programs|Programs and Features|Uninstall a Programor
Control Panel|Programs and Features|Uninstall or change a programon Windows Vista or Windows 7 (depending on which view is displayed), but note that clicking on the Change/Remove button for MathPlayer will remove the MathPlayer files without asking for any confirmation.
MathPlayer may also be downloaded from Design Science's web site:
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. For evaluation purposes a trial license may be used. Before obtaining a full license you need to know the Kusari hostid of the system on which you intend to use this product. How to do this is described below.
The easiest way to request a license key is to use the Kusari Installer GUI described in the next section. Once you have a key, the same GUI can be used to install it.
The information below covers the most common requirements. For more
complex licensing situations, please see the Kusari documentation
To request a license key, run the Kusari Installer program, which may be accessed at the end of the installation procedure or via the Start Menu shortcut
Start|All Programs|NAG|FS23|NAG Library for SMP and Multicore (FSW6I23DCL) |Request or Install License Keyand click on the
The NAG Response Centre will send you the Kusari license key by email.
A short term (demonstration or trial) license key contains one or more lines like the following:
FSW6I23DC TRIAL 2010/11/12 "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, the Kusari
Installer program may be used to install the key in the Windows
Registry. Paste the key into the edit box on the main Kusari
Installer dialog and then click on the
The khostid command may be found in the
klreg FSW6I23DC license.datOtherwise the key can be installed for the current user,
klreg /current_user FSW6I23DC license.dat
The environment variable may be set from the Control Panel.
The A00ACF example program may be used to check the license is properly installed or the diagnostic program NAG_Fortran_DLL_info.exe can be used to check both accessibility and licensing (see Section 4.2.3).
Alternatively, run the diagnostic program NAG_Fortran_DLL_info.exe which itself calls A00AAF (see Section 4.2.3).
C:\Program Files\NAG\FS23\fsw6i23dcl\diagnosticsmay be used to check whether the DLL FSW6I23DC.dll is accessible from the current environment. If this program is started from Windows Explorer or from the
Start|All Programs|NAG|FS23|NAG Library for SMP and Multicore (FSW6I23DCL) |Check NAG DLL Accessibility (FSW6I23DCL)shortcut on the Start Menu, the DLL will be found if the global PATH environment variable has been set to include its location. If it is run from a Command Prompt window, then the environment local to that window will prevail. (See Section 3.1.1 of the Users' Note for more information on environment variables.)
If it loads the DLL successfully, NAG_Fortran_DLL_info.exe will print the location of the DLL, and the implementation details as provided by a call to the routine A00AAF. It also calls A00ACF to check the availability of a valid license key and reports if this is not found; "Status OK" indicates that a valid key was either found or not required.
