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.
By default [INSTALL_DIR] (see Installer's Note (in.html)) is /opt/NAG/fnai304dal or /usr/local/NAG/fnai304dal depending on your system; however it could have been changed by the installer. To identify [INSTALL_DIR] for this installation:
xlf90_r -I[INSTALL_DIR]/nagfl90_modules driver.f90 \ [INSTALL_DIR]/lib/libnagfl90_essl.a -lessl -lpthreadwhere driver.f90 is your application program;
or
xlf90_r -I[INSTALL_DIR]/nagfl90_modules driver.f90 \ [INSTALL_DIR]/lib/libnagfl90_essl.so -lessl -lpthreadif the shareable library is required.
However, if you prefer to link to a version of the NAG library which does not require the use of the IBM ESSL library, you may wish to use the self-contained libraries as follows:
xlf90_r -I[INSTALL_DIR]/nagfl90_modules driver.f90 \ [INSTALL_DIR]/lib/libnagfl90_nag.a -lpthreador
xlf90_r -I[INSTALL_DIR]/nagfl90_modules driver.f90 \ [INSTALL_DIR]/lib/libnagfl90_nag.so -lpthreadif the shareable library is required.
Please note that using a self-contained library may result in some degradation in the performance of your application.
If your application has been linked with the shareable NAG library then the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH must be set (or extended) to allow run time linkage.
In the C shell type:
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH [INSTALL_DIR]/libto set LD_LIBRARY_PATH, or
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH ${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:[INSTALL_DIR]/libto extend LD_LIBRARY_PATH if you already have it set.
In the Bourne shell, type:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=[INSTALL_DIR]/lib export LD_LIBRARY_PATHto set LD_LIBRARY_PATH, or
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:[INSTALL_DIR]/lib export LD_LIBRARY_PATHto extend LD_LIBRARY_PATH if you already have it set.
Please note that:
To use the the NAG fl90 Library and the IBM ESSL library, you may link in the following manner:
xlf90_r driver.f90 -lnagfl90_essl -lessl -lpthreadTo use the shareable library libnagfl90_essl.so you need the -brtl loader flag to switch dynamic binding on:
xlf90_r -brtl driver.f90 -lnagfl90_essl -lessl -lpthread
However, if you prefer to link to a version of the NAG library which does not require the use of the IBM ESSL library, you may wish to use the self-contained libraries as follows:
xlf90_r driver.f90 -lnagfl90_nag -lpthreadThis will usually link to the static library in preference to the shareable library if both the libraries are at the same location.
To use the shareable library libnagfl90_nag.so you need the -brtl loader flag to switch dynamic binding on:
xlf90_r -brtl driver.f90 -lnagfl90_nag -lpthreadPlease note that using a self-contained library may result in some degradation in the performance of your application.
If your application has been linked with the shareable NAG library then the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH must be set (or extended) to allow run time linkage.
In the C shell type:

Please note that:
The example programs are most easily accessed by one of the commands
Each command will provide you with a copy of an example program (and its data, if any), compile the program and link it with the appropriate libraries (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 the command, e.g.
nagfl90_example nag_nlp_ex01will copy the example program and its data into the files nag_nlp_ex01.f90 and nag_nlp_ex01.dat in the current directory and process them to produce the example program results (using the compiled library libnagfl90_nag.a).
The example programs are supplied in machine-readable form. They are suitable for immediate execution. Note that the distributed example programs are those used in this implementation and may not correspond exactly with the programs published in the manual. The distributed example programs should be used in preference wherever possible.
The distributed example results are those obtained with the NAG self-contained static library libnagfl90_nag.a, (using the NAG BLAS and LAPACK routines). Running the examples with vendor ESSL lbrary may give slightly different results.
