NAG C Library

Supporting Documentation

The NAG C Library Manual, Mark 26 is available online in the following formats:

  • HTML: the full manual available as HTML (using HTML5 features such as MathML and SVG in suitable browsers);

Advice on viewing and navigating the first three formats can be found in the How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation document. You are strongly advised to read this document if you wish to try the HTML format.

The two single file formats are more compact than the formats using one file per routine, but of course are a larger download if you only need to view the documentation for a few routines.

The Library is organized into Chapters – each being documented with its own Introduction and Contents list followed by a comprehensive document for each function detailing its purpose, description, list of parameters and possible error exits. Example programs and results are also supplied. All examples are available online to facilitate their use as templates for the users' calling programs.

The known issues document reflects all reported and resolved issues that affect various releases of the NAG C Library, along with suggested workarounds where possible.
