In addition, NAG recommends that before calling any Library routine you should read the following reference material (see Section 5):
(a) Essential Introduction
(b) Chapter Introduction
(c) Routine Document
The libraries supplied with this implementation have been compiled in a manner that facilitates the use of multiple threads.
http://www.nag.co.uk/doc/inun/cl24/soldc/postrelease.html
for details of any new information related to the applicability or usage of this implementation.
By default [INSTALL_DIR] (see Installer's Note (in.html)) is /opt/NAG/clsol24dc or /usr/local/NAG/clsol24dc depending on your system; however it could have been changed by the person who did the installation. To identify [INSTALL_DIR] for this installation:
cc driver.c -I[INSTALL_DIR]/include [INSTALL_DIR]/lib/libnagc_spl.a \ -xlic_lib=sunperf -lm -lpthread -lsunmathwhere driver.c is your application program;
or
cc driver.c -I[INSTALL_DIR]/include [INSTALL_DIR]/lib/libnagc_spl.so \ -xlic_lib=sunperf -lm -lpthread -lsunmathif the shareable library is required.
However, if you prefer to link to a version of the NAG C Library which does not require the use of the Sun Performance Library, you may wish to use the self-contained libraries as follows:
cc driver.c -I[INSTALL_DIR]/include [INSTALL_DIR]/lib/libnagc_nag.a \ -lm -lpthread -lsunmathor
cc driver.c -I[INSTALL_DIR]/include [INSTALL_DIR]/lib/libnagc_nag.so \ -lm -lpthread -lsunmathif the shareable library is required.
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 \ [INSTALL_DIR]/lib:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}to extend LD_LIBRARY_PATH if you already have it set.
In the Bourne shell, type:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=[INSTALL_DIR]/lib export LD_LIBRARY_PATHto set LD_LIBRARY_PATH, or
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=[INSTALL_DIR]/lib:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH} export LD_LIBRARY_PATHto extend LD_LIBRARY_PATH if you already have it set.
Note that you may also need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point at other items such as compiler run-time libraries, for example if you are using a newer version of the compiler.
Note that the example material has been adapted, if necessary, from that published in the Library Manual, so that programs are suitable for execution with this implementation with no further changes. The distributed example programs should be used in preference to the versions in the Library Manual wherever possible.
The directory [INSTALL_DIR]/scripts contains four scripts: nagc_example_spl, nagc_example_shar_spl, nagc_example and nagc_example_shar.
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 and options file, 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 with appropriate arguments specifying data, options and results files as needed.
The example program concerned is specified by the argument to the command, e.g.
nagc_example_spl e04uccwill copy the example program and its data and options files (e04ucce.c, e04ucce.d and e04ucce.opt) into the current directory, compile the program and run it to produce the example program results in the file e04ucce.r.
NAG Type | C Type | Size (bytes) |
---|---|---|
Integer | long | 4 |
Pointer | void * | 4 |
The values for sizeof(Integer) and sizeof(Pointer) are also given by the a00aac example program. Information on other NAG data types is available in the Essential Introduction section of the Library Manual (see Section 5).
