NAGWare f95 Compiler Release 5.1 - README file NPW3251NA

  This is README.txt for the NAGWare f95 Compiler Release 5.1 for Windows.

1. Introduction

   At Release 5.1, the NAGWare f95 Compiler is distributed with an integrated
   development environment, called Fortran Builder.  Although the compiler can
   still be used from the command line as before, the directory structure of
   the installation has changed slightly and therefore you might need to modify
   your PATH to access the compiler in that way.

2. System Requirements

   Operating System: Windows XP and Vista.
   Hardware: Pentium Pro or compatible.
   Memory: 256MB.
   Disc Space: 270MB.

3. Platform-dependent Information

   64-bit integers: YES
   Garbage Collection: YES
   128-bit reals: NO
   Debugger: Included as part of the Fortran Builder.
             (There is no standalone debugger.)

4. Installation

   The NAGWare f95 Compiler should be installed using the provided
   installation program.

   Technical information on the NAGWare f95 Compiler for other platforms
   (including Unix installation) is contained in the file TECHINFO.txt.

   The installation may be tested by compiling and running the utility program
   f90_util.f90, which is provided in the same directory as the compiler
   library files.  To compile and link this program, copy the source file to
   your working directory and type

       f95 -o f90_util.exe f90_util.f90

   (This assumes that the compiler binaries have been installed in a directory
   included in your PATH environment variable.)  The program (f90_util.exe)
   may now be run.

3. Licensing

   NAGWare f95 is a licence-managed product using Kusari.  If you downloaded
   it from the web you will also need to request a licence and may need to
   download the licensing software.

   Details on installation of the licensing software and the licence are
   in the file KLICENCE.

   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
