Users' Note



Contents


1. Introduction

This document is essential reading for every user of the NAG fl90 implementation specified in the title. It provides implementation-specific detail that augments the information provided in the NAG fl90 Manual. Wherever that manual refer to the "Users' Note for your implementation", you should consult this note.

NAG recommends that you read the following minimum reference material before calling any library procedure:

(a) Essential Introduction
(b) Chapter Introduction
(c) Procedure Document
(d) Implementation-specific Users' Note

Items (a), (b) and (c) are included in the NAG fl90 Manual; item (d) is this document which is provided in HTML form.

2. Availability of Procedures

All procedures listed in the chapter contents documents of the NAG fl90 Manual, Release 4 are available in this implementation. At Release 4, 43 new primary ("user-callable") generic procedures have been introduced. Please consult the Release 4 News document in the fl90 Manual for lists of these procedures and for a list of procedures scheduled for withdrawal at future Releases. Your suggestions for new algorithms for future releases of the Library are welcomed (see Section 7).

3. General Information

3.1. Accessing the Library

Assuming that the appropriate library has been installed as libnagfl90.a in a directory in the search path of the linker, such as /usr/lib, and that the module information files are accessible via the directory /usr/local/lib/fl90_modules, then you may link to NAG fl90 in the following manner:

f95 -I/usr/local/lib/fl90_modules driver.f90 -lnagfl90 -lcrypt -lpthread
where driver.f90 is your application program.

3.2. Example Programs

will provide you with a copy of an example program (and its data, if any), compile the program and link it with the library (showing you the compile command so that you can recompile your own version of the program). Finally, the executable program will be run, presenting its output to stdout. The example program concerned is specified by the argument to nagexample, e.g.
nagexample nag_gen_lin_sys_ex01
will copy the example program and its data into the files nag_gen_lin_sys_ex01.f90 and nag_gen_lin_sys_ex01.dat in the current directory and process them to produce the example program results.

3.3. User Documentation

The following machine-readable information file is provided in the doc directory:

A full on-line version of the NAG fl90 Manual is supplied in the form of Portable Document (PDF) files. You will need to check how this version has been made available at your site.

4. Procedure-specific Information

Any further information which applies to one or more procedures in this implementation is listed below.
