The information here is applicable to the DLLs supplied with CLW3226DEL. For the latest information on calling the NAG C Library DLLs from various environments, or for sample projects for a specific Mark of the NAG C Library, please go to the main NAG C Library DLL support index page.
Support files for Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) may be found in this zip file. These files can be used in 32-bit VBA code. Separate Visual Basic .NET headers are available.
For each NAG C Library chapter letter there is a file called clvb6-<chapter letter>.bas which contains the VB declarations of the C functions from all the chapters beginning with this letter. For example, clvb6-e.bas contains the declarations of all the functions from chapters e01, e02, e04 and e05. There is also a corresponding set of files called clvb6-<chapter letter>-long.bas using NAG C Library long names. The supplied files also contain commented out skeletons for call-back functions. All Enum and Type declarations necessary for the parameters (mandatory and optional) can be found in the file clvb6-types.bas. The file clvb6-utilities.bas contains declarations of the Windows kernel function RtlMoveMemory and its aliases. This function is used to copy memory between C pointers and VB variables or arrays. clvb6-*.bas files can be imported into your VB project.
The header files are based on the stand-alone version of the NAG C Library DLL (CLW3226DE_nag.dll); to specify the version of the DLL which uses the MKL BLAS/LAPACK instead (CLW3226DE_mkl.dll), replace CLW3226DE_nag.dll by CLW3226DE_mkl.dll in the Function and Sub declarations.
See the pages on using the NAG C DLLs from Excel for information on how to use these headers.
