Known Issues for the NAG Fortran Library

This document reflects all reported and resolved issues that affect various releases of the NAG Fortran Library up to Mark 26.1.
Some of these issues may have been fixed at intermediate "point" releases of the Library, while other fixes are scheduled for incorporation at future releases. For library Marks where those fixes are not yet incorporated, a workaround for the known issue is provided wherever possible.
To find the Mark and point release number of your library, call NAG routine  a00aaf( ).
c02agf
Synopsis Overflow may occur if the routine attempts to scale the polynomial coefficients.
Description In rare circumstances overflow may be observed if scal = .TRUE. .
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 16
Workaround Set argument scal = .FALSE. .
c05adf
Synopsis Routine c05adf exhibits unpredictable (and incorrect) behaviour.
Description Certain smooth and continuous test functions can cause the routine to behave in an unpredictable manner, including homing in to a zero outside the specified interval or wildly oscillating and generating NaNs.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 22.1
Fixed at Mark 22.2
Workaround None.
c05qsf
Synopsis iflag not set on entry to fcn in c05qsf.
Description The argument iflag to fcn in c05qsf is never initialized internally, but its value on exit from fcn is tested to determine whether user termination has been requested.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 23.1
Workaround If you wish to continue execution, always set iflag to a positive value in fcn .
c09aaf, c09ccf and c09cdf
Synopsis Multi-level wavelets cannot handle periodic end extension.
Description When mode = 'P' and wtrans = 'M' the multi-level wavelet transform routines do not work properly if n is not a power of 2.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 22
Fixed at Mark 23
Workaround The option combination of a multi-level wavelet transform using a periodic end extension is currently disallowed; a call to the initialization routine c09aaf with this combination will return with an error code.
For multilevel analysis of periodic data, you are advised to experiment with the alternative end conditions; the periodic property of the data can also be used to extend the data set in both directions to points that better suit the alternative end condition (e.g., extend the data to next maximum or minimum).
d01esf
Synopsis Initialization and option setting does not work when using the long name.
Description Initialization and option setting for the sparse grid routine d01esf (nagf_quad_md_sgq_multi_vec) using d01zkf (nagf_quad_opt_set) does not work when using the long name nagf_quad_md_sgq_multi_vec in the option string.
It does work when using the short name d01esf in the option string.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 25
Fixed at Mark 25.2
Workaround Initializing and setting options for d01esf (nagf_quad_md_sgq_multi_vec) via calls to d01zkf (nagf_quad_opt_set) should use option strings containing the short name d01esf rather than the long name.
d01esf
Synopsis Segmentation faults when optional parameter Index Level is set to a value greater than m q .
Description Segmentation faults or other array bound violation problems may occur if the value of Index Level (set via a call to d01zkf) is greater than m q , the maximum level of the underlying quadrature rule.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 25
Fixed at Mark 25.4
Workaround Do not set Index Level to more than 9 when using Gauss–Patterson or more than 12 when using Clenshaw–Curtis.
d01esf
Synopsis Quadrature Rule = GP is not accepted as a valid option.
Description When setting the quadrature rule for d01esf using the d01zkf option setting routine, the documented choice Quadrature Rule = GP is not recognised as a valid option and an error is reported.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 25
Fixed at Mark 25.4
Workaround The alternatives Quadrature Rule = Gauss-Patterson   or  GPATT may be used instead.
Note: Gauss-Patterson is the default choice for the quadrature rule in d01esf, so in general it will not be necessary to specify this option.
d06aaf, d06abf and d06acf
Synopsis Stack size or thread safety problems may be observed with some d06 routines.
Description d06aaf, d06abf and d06acf contain large local arrays that may cause stack size and/or thread safety problems.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 20
Fixed at Mark 24
Workaround Do not use these routines in a multithreaded environment. For serial execution, set stack size limit to 10MB or greater.
d06abf
Synopsis Although the documented constraint on nvmax is nvmax nvb + nvint , the actual required minimum for nvmax is nvb + nvint + 12 .
For some small scale problems, setting nvmax = nvb + nvint will give unpredictable results and could produce a segmentation fault.
Description Although the documented constraint on nvmax is nvmax nvb + nvint , the actual required minimum for nvmax is nvb + nvint + 12 .
For some small scale problems, setting nvmax = nvb + nvint will give unpredictable results and could produce a segmentation fault.
The problem is remedied by setting nvmax = nvb + nvint + 12 and ensuring that the arrays coor and conn are correspondingly large enough.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 20
Fixed at Mark 26
Workaround Set nvmax nvb + nvint + 12 ; declare or allocate the arrays coor and conn using this value of nvmax ; increase the lengths of the work arrays ( rwork and iwork ) to account for the increase in the value of nvint .
d06abf, d06acf and d06baf
Synopsis d06abf, d06acf and d06baf may crash if itrace > 1 .
Description Setting argument itrace > 1 in calls of any of d06abf, d06acf and d06baf causes failure with a run-time error due to record overflow - values are written into a string which is not big enough.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 22.1
Fixed at Mark 22.2
Workaround Argument itrace is used to get printed information about a generated grid. The only workaround is to use values of itrace 1 .
d06abf and d06acf
Synopsis d06abf and d06acf array bound violation.
Description Calls to d06abf and d06acf could, potentially, perform memory overwrites leading to unpredictable behaviour. This is due to the possibility of writes to the array argument coor of d06abf and d06acf outside of its declared bounds; this could occur when the argument nvmax is set to a value less than nvb + nvint + 12 for calls to d06abf or to a value less than nvb + nvint + 13 for calls to d06acf.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 22
Fixed at Mark 22.1
Workaround Increase the value of nvmax to be at least nvb + nvint + 12 when calling d06abf and to be at least nvb + nvint + 13 when calling d06acf. This will ensure that no array bound violations for coor are possible.
e01sgf, e01shf, e01tgf and e01thf
Synopsis The algorithm underlying interpolation routines e01sgf, e01shf, e01tgf and e01thf was modified at Mark 26 and Mark 26.1; different results will be obtained when using these routines than previously.
Description The algorithm underlying interpolation routines e01sgf, e01shf, e01tgf and e01thf was modified at Mark 26 to improve perceived deficiencies. In particular, at earlier library Marks the evaluation routines would not attempt to return any useful result if an evaluation point was not close enough to any of the original data points, and this issue was addressed at Mark 26.
At Mark 26.1 further work was done on the routines because they had been found not to work well on gridded data sets (as opposed to the random data sets that they are primarily intended for).
It should be noted that because of the various underlying changes to the routines, the precise results returned from Mark 26 onwards will not usually be identical to those before Mark 26.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 26
Fixed at Mark 26.1
Workaround Not applicable.
e02bff
Synopsis Incorrect computation and potential illegal memory read may occur with start = 10   or  11 and xord = 1 .
Description When using start = 10   or  11 and xord = 1 , if any abscissae are outside the valid section of the spline (i.e., ixloc < 4 or ixloc > ncap7 - 3 ) and the ordering of the segment groups of abscissae is insufficient, some valid abscissae will not be evaluated and the evaluation of some invalid abscissae will be attempted. Specifically, if there are NLOWER abscissae with ixloc < 4 and NUPPER abscissae with ixloc > ncap7 - 3 , then all abscissae with index i satisfying NLOWER < i nx - NUPPER will be evaluated, and all other abscissae will not be evaluated. Hence if (the provided or computed) ixloc is not ordered as ixloc < 4 4 ixloc ncap7 - 3 ixloc > ncap7 - 3 , i.e., any lower invalid points are at the start and any invalid upper points are at the end, then some incorrect computation will be performed. If any lower invalid points are not at the start, then an illegal data read of c before its first element will be performed.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 24
Fixed at Mark 25
Workaround Either order the abscissae so that any lower invalid points are at the start and any upper invalid points are at the end, or do not use xord = 1 with start = 10   or  11 .
e02gaf
Synopsis Ill-conditioned data sets may cause e02gaf to get stuck in an infinite loop.
Description Certain ill-conditioned data sets could cause e02gaf to get stuck in an infinite loop.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 16
Fixed at Mark 26
Workaround As a workaround, it may be possible to avoid the infinite loop by reordering the points in the input data.
e04dga, e04mfa, e04nca, e04nfa, e04nka, e04uca, e04ufa, e04uga and e04usa
Synopsis No check that a mandatory call to the initialization routine has been made.
Description Whilst it is necessary to call initialization routine e04wbf prior to calling the named e04 routines, no software check is made to ensure that this has happened.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 20
Workaround Ensure that initialization routine e04wbf has been called.
e04fcf
Synopsis Internal buffer overflow in e04fcf.
Description When the grade of the optimization problem drops to zero, an internal buffer overflow occurs. This destroys some of the internal state of the optimizer, typically causing it to stop prematurely.
Scope of the problem:
If the grade of the optimization problem is non-zero on exit from e04fcf, then the bug is not triggered and that particular optimization is unaffected. If the grade is zero on exit, then the optimization is affected in all supported FL marks. (Note: the grade can be observed by setting iprint = 1 and using e04fdz).
How the problem manifests:
Optimization terminates prematurely, usually with ifail = 3 . Note: an exit with ifail = 3 does not on its own indicate that an optimization is affected by the bug.
Severity:
Since the solver is typically close to convergence when the grade drops to zero, the returned solution is usually pretty good. The bug fix is unlikely to improve the results of e04fcf significantly.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 16
Fixed at Mark 24.5
Workaround There is no practical workaround.
e04lbf
Synopsis In very rare cases, the algorithm used by e04lbf may become trapped in an infinite loop.
Description The routine might lock itself in an infinite loop when a variable lying on the boundary is cyclically added and removed to/from free variables. This can happen only at points with indefinite Hessian and very small projected gradients when one variable is lying on the boundary and another one is very close to it.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 16
Fixed at Mark 25
Workaround Unfortunately there is no convenient workaround.
e04mtf
Synopsis stats and rinfo were not correctly filled by the presolver.
Description The arrays stats and rinfo were not correctly filled when the problem was entirely solved by the presolver. It now returns the correct values.
The optional parameter Print Solution now correctly writes the linear constraints dual variables when no bounds are defined on the variables.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 26.1
Fixed at Mark 27
Workaround Don't rely on rinfo 1 , rinfo 2 to hold the primal and dual objective in this case and recompute it as c x and b y , respectively.
e04mxf
Synopsis Insufficient estimates of problem size might lead to crash.
Description In some circumstances when calling e04mxf not in query mode, internal memory overwrites may occur, possibly causing program crash.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 24
Fixed at Mark 25
Workaround Call e04mxf in query mode first to get good upper estimates of the problem size.
e04nka and e04nkf
Synopsis Actual array size required is underestimated.
Description Sometimes the suggested array size returned in parameter miniz is underestimated.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 22
Fixed at Mark 24
Workaround Increase the size of array iz and the value of leniz accordingly.
e04nqf, e04vhf and e04wdf
Synopsis Internal file overflow.
Description If you set a New Basis File in e04nqf, e04vhf and e04wdf and your total problem size ( n + m , n + nf or n + nclin + ncnln , respectively) is greater than 80 you will experience an internal buffer overflow and possible program crash.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 22.3
Fixed at Mark 23
Workaround Unfortunately there is no convenient workaround. The only way to avoid this crash is to not specify a New Basis File or to have a small enough problem.
e04nsf
Synopsis List option does not work.
Description Call e04nsf('List',cw,iw,rw,ifail) fails to cause the options subsequently set to be echoed.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 23.2
Workaround Unfortunately there is no convenient workaround.
e04stf
Synopsis Wrong Intent for cpuser argument in NAG Ipopt solver.
Description The explicit Fortran interface blocks for e04stf and its associated user procedures mistakenly advertise their cpuser argument as Intent (Inout).
The argument should be Intent (In): you may modify any data for which you are using cpuser as a handle, but you must not change the handle itself.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 26
Fixed at Mark 26.1
Workaround In user procedures supplied to e04stf that have explicit interfaces, change cpuser to have Intent (In).
e04stf
Synopsis e04stf returns Lagrangian multipliers in the wrong order.
Description The Lagrangian multipliers returned in u are in the wrong order:
  • multipliers for lower bound and upper bound of non-box constraints are swapped;
  • nonlinear constraints multipliers are stored before the linear ones.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 26
Fixed at Mark 26.1
Workaround The order described in the documentation is now used.
e04uff
Synopsis Insufficient space in work array might lead to a crash.
Description Insufficient space in work array might lead to a crash, this is particularly likely if lwork < n + ncnln + 2 .
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 18
Fixed at Mark 26.1
Workaround Provide sufficient size as recommended in the documentation.
e04vhf
Synopsis Information about the last constraint might not be printed.
Description If the problem has a nonlinear objective function without a linear part and objrow < nf , the last constraint is not printed in the final information about the solution (Rows section).
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 21
Fixed at Mark 26
Workaround None.
e04vhf and e04wdf
Synopsis Setting the optional parameters List or Nolist for e04vhf (using e04vlf) or for e04wdf (using e04wff) results in an erroneous exit flag and, potentially, undefined behaviour.
Description Enabling or disabling echoing of optional parameters to e04vhf as they are set, by specifying
Call e04vlf('List',iw,rw,ifail)
or
Call e04vlf('Nolist',iw,rw,ifail)
results in an internal exit flag being set. This erroneous, undefined, error flag is then returned as ifail by e04vhf.
Enabling or disabling echoing of optional parameters to e04wdf as they are set, by specifying
Call e04wff('List',iw,rw,ifail)
or
Call e04wff('Nolist',iw,rw,ifail)
results in an internal exit flag being set. This erroneous, undefined, error flag is then returned as ifail by e04wdf.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 23.2
Workaround Unfortunately there is no convenient workaround using NAG Fortran Library routines, but it is possible to set an element of the iw array to enable or disable listing. To enable listing (equivalent to setting List ) set iw 502 = 1 and to disable listing ( Nolist ) set iw 502 = 0 .
e04vhf and others
Synopsis User-supplied character strings containing spaces may cause garbled error messages.
Description Some routines produce error messages containing character data that has been supplied through the argument List by the user. An example is e04vhf, where the or can be referred to in error messages. Having spaces in these strings confuses the internal error-message splitter, which splits on spaces. Thus, error messages returned by the routine may be garbled.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 22
Fixed at Mark 23
Workaround Make sure user-provided character data is without spaces
e04xaf/e04xaa
Synopsis Attempt to write too many characters to a record in a routine called by e04xaf/e04xaa.
Description Call e04xaf/e04xaa with msglvl = 2 and a compiler runtime error may occur.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 22.1
Fixed at Mark 22.2
Workaround Don't call e04xaf/e04xaa with msglvl = 2 .
e05jbf
Synopsis Array-out-of-bounds error in routine called by e05jbf.
Description When using initialization method iinit = 4 with infinite bounds bl and bu , and when the number of randomly-generated initialization points (which will always be between 3 and sdlist ) is greater than n , NaNs may be created in the initialization data, which makes the initializer enter into an infinite loop.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 22
Fixed at Mark 22.1
Workaround Use finite bounds when iinit = 4 .
e05jcf and e05jdf
Synopsis Crash may occur when the real value does not contain a decimal point, e.g., when 1E5 is passed as the real value.
Description When setting a real valued optional parameter using either e05jcf or e05jdf, if the real value contained in the string is in exponential format without a decimal point (for example 1E5 as opposed to 1.0E5), an unrecoverable crash may occur.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 23.1
Workaround Real values contained in the optional parameter string should always include a decimal point.
e05saf and e05sbf
Synopsis Gradient check is incorrect and will fail or enter infinite loop.
Description Error in objfun gradient checking when using either e05saf or e05sbf in conjunction with e04dgf/e04dga or e04kzf as the local minimizer.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 23.1
Workaround Simply disabling gradient checking will allow the algorithm to continue unhindered. Alternatively, using e04ucf/e04uca as the local minimizer will test the gradients provided in objfun correctly.
e05saf and e05sbf
Synopsis Optional parameter values can be set incorrectly.
Description If optional parameter Local Interior Iterations = 0 is set then this will also, incorrectly, disable local exterior iterations.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 23.2
Workaround If no internal local minimization is required, set optional parameter Local Interior Iterations = 1 .
e05sbf
Synopsis Unpredictable behaviour if e05sbf is called with ncon ndim + 2 .
Description Attempting to solve non-linearly constrained problems where the number of constraints is greater than the number of dimensions may lead to unpredictable behaviour.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 23.2
Workaround Increasing ndim to be greater than ncon , and setting all additional box bounds to equality will prevent the error. This will unfortunately come at a cost of efficiency in the routine.
e05zkf
Synopsis Crash may occur when the real value does not contain a decimal point, e.g., when 1E5 is passed as the real value.
Description When setting a real valued optional parameter using e05zkf, if the real value contained in the string is in exponential format without a decimal point (for example 1E5 as opposed to 1.0E5), an unrecoverable crash may occur.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 23.1
Workaround Real values contained in the optional parameter string should always include a decimal point.
e05zkf
Synopsis Parsing an optional parameter string may incorrectly identify a token as numeric.
Description e05zkf may incorrectly identify strings, that may be numeric in exponential format, as numeric when they should be interpreted as strings. The exact circumstance under which this error may occur cannot be defined and it is unlikely to occur in practice.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 23.1
Workaround Avoid using optional parameter strings that contain substrings such as ‘E05’, ‘+D01’, ‘.E15’, …, as input.
f01bsf
Synopsis An error message issued by the routine may be garbled.
Description When called with data which is incompatible with the matrix factorized by the previous call of f01brf, f01bsf will return ifail = 5 , but the associated printed message may be garbled.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 19
Fixed at Mark 25
Workaround Avoid supplying incompatible data to f01bsf.
g02anf
Synopsis The returned matrix is not a valid correlation matrix.
Description The algorithm computes an incorrect value for alpha . Thus the returned matrix is not positive definite as stated, and is not a valid correlation matrix.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 25
Fixed at Mark 25.3
Workaround Unfortunately there is no convenient workaround.
g02hff
Synopsis Incorrect results are returned when performing a Mallows type regression.
Description Incorrect results are returned when performing a Mallows type regression, averaging over residuals.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 16
Fixed at Mark 26.1
Workaround None.
g02jcf
Synopsis Segmentation fault caused by access past the end of an array.
Description An error can occur when there are multiple blocks of random variables, at least one with a subject variable and at least one without. The error can only occur when the block with the subject variable occurs first in rndm .
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 25
Workaround Ensure that blocks without subject variables appear in rndm before those with subject variables.
g02jdf
Synopsis In very rare cases, the routine may become trapped in an infinite loop.
Description The routine was affected by a bug in the underlying solver e04lbf (modified Newton method). In very rare cases the solver might get into an infinite loop.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 25
Workaround The bug can be avoided by switching to the other optimizer (SQP method e04ucf/e04uca, iopt 5 = 1 ).
g02qgf
Synopsis Returns incorrect results when ntau > 1 and user supplied initial values for b are being used.
Description If ntau > 1 , the optional parameter Calculate Initial Values = NO is set, and the rows of array B are not all identical, then the results returned by g02qgf are incorrect.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 24
Workaround Rather than call the routine once with ntau > 1 , call the routine multiple times with ntau = 1 , analysing a different value of tau on each call.
g05saf
Synopsis When run on multiple threads, the Mersenne Twister generator present in g05saf and other associated g05 routines may not give the expected sequence on the second and subsequent calls (after initialization) to the routine.
Description The NAG Mersenne Twister pseudo-random number generator is used within g05saf and other g05 routines. The size, lstate , of the state array used by this generator is 633 as a minimum and 1260 if the skip-ahead functionality is desired. See the document for g05kff for further details.
When using the Mersenne Twister generator in a multithreaded version of the NAG Library and running on multiple threads, if lstate < 1260 , the state array was not being initialized correctly inside the code for g05saf. Thus on a second and subsequent call to any of the NAG pseudo-random number routines after initialization the sequence produced could be different from that expected from the Mersenne Twister algorithm, and if the entire calculation was repeated, different from run to run.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 26
Workaround The problem can be avoided by either:
  1. Always using a state array of size lstate = 1260 , this being the recommended solution.
  2. Only run the Mersenne Twister generator on one thread.
g05sgf
Synopsis Inconsistent random number sequences when running g05sgf in parallel.
Description When running the parallelized version of g05sgf in the NAG Library for SMP & Multicore on multiple threads, the random number sequence generated may be inconsistent from run to run, and may not conform to the algorithmic properties expected from this routine. This is most likely to occur when the number of random numbers to be generated is small.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Fixed at Mark 24.5
Workaround It is recommended that users do not call this routine in parallel, which can be achieved either by setting the environment variable OMP_NUM_THREADS to 1 (affecting the entire program) or using the OpenMP runtime library routine OMP_SET_NUM_THREADS to set the number of threads to 1 before calling g05sgf and then using OMP_SET_NUM_THREADS again to reset the number of threads to the desired value for subsequent calls to other parallelized routines or the users own OpenMP parallelized code.
g08ckf and g08clf
Synopsis The wrong value for p is returned when aa2 is large.
Description In g08ckf and g08clf the value returned for the upper tail probability p is wrong when the calculated Anderson-Darling test statistic aa2 is large. In the case of g08ckf, when aa2 > 153.4677 the returned value of p should be zero; in the case of g08clf, when aa2 > 10.03 the returned value of p should be exp - 14.360135 .
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 23
Workaround Workaround for g08ckf:
Call g08ckf(...)
If (aa2 > 153.4677d0) p = 0.0d0
Workaround for g08clf:
Call g08clf(...)
If (aa2 > 10.03d0) p = exp(-14.360135d0)
g13faf
Synopsis g13faf may return a negative value as the estimate of the last β parameter (i.e., β p ) for a subset of models.
Description g13faf can result in a negative value for the estimate of the last β parameter (i.e., β p ) or, if p = 0 , the last α parameter (i.e., α q ).
This issue only affects a subset of models that have normally distributed errors and do not include an asymmetry term.
If the routine did not return a negative value as the estimate of the last β parameter (or, if p = 0 , the last α parameter), then that particular model was not affected by the issue.
Severity Critical
Issue Since Mark 20
Fixed at Mark 27
Workaround None
h02bbf
Synopsis Misleading error associated with an undocumented error exit can be produced.
Description A puzzling error message may be produced with an undocumented error exit ifail = 11 if workspace sizes are not sufficiently large to accommodate an internal partition of the workspace that meets the requirements of the problem.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 22
Fixed at Mark 24
Workaround Increase the size of workspace arrays iwork and rwork and their dimensions liwork and lrwork .
h02cbf
Synopsis Minimum lengths of real workspace displayed in errors messages from h02cbf/h02cba are incorrect.
Description If you provide too little real workspace to h02cbf/h02cba the minimum value required will be displayed in the error message (if messaging is enabled). The value is too small by 4 × mdepth + n . The documented values are correct.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 22.3
Fixed at Mark 22.4
Workaround Add 4 × mdepth + n to the minimum lwrk described in error messages, or use the values from the documentation.
LAPACK (applies to 32-bit Windows Library FLDLL244M/L only)
Synopsis Calls of LAPACK routines with incorrect arguments may cause program crash.
Description (This error report applies to 32-bit Windows library FLDLL244M/L only).
In some circumstances, a call to an LAPACK routine from the FLDLL244M_mkl variant of the NAG library may cause a program crash. The crash can occur if your program calls any LAPACK routine with faulty arguments (for example, if you call LAPACK routine DGETRF with argument n < 0 ). In normal circumstances, MKL should issue an error message, but a problem with the LAPACK error handling routine XERBLA in the version of MKL distributed with Mark 24.1 of the NAG library leads to a crash instead of an error message.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 24.1
Fixed at Mark 24.1.1
Workaround A workaround is simply to link to the all-NAG library FLDLL244M_nag where the problem does not exist. Once you are confident that you have no argument errors in your calls to LAPACK routines, you can revert to calling FLDLL244M_mkl.
s30naf
Synopsis The constraint on argument s is incorrectly checked.
Description The documented constraint on argument s is correct, but the constraint was incorrectly checked. This made it impossible to use a value of s less than 1.0.
Severity Non-critical
Issue Since Mark 22
Fixed at Mark 22.1
Workaround None.
