: Does the Redhat distribution's Fortran compiler come with the NAG libraries
: and if so, how does one access them. If not, where should I look to obtain
: a copy of them. Thanks.
Redhat doesn't come with any NAG products (libraries or compilers). The
NAG products are proprietary and therefore too expensive to come with any
reasonably priced Linux distribution.
You can get NAG products for Linux (x86 binaries) if you need NAG
specifically although you'll be spending 500 to 1000 dollars (US) for the
mathematical libs package and maybe another 500 for the F90 compiler.
Note that these were prices that were quoted to me about six months ago
for single machine student discount. The prices are much higher for
If you are just looking for a collection of mathematical libs and tools,
there is a LARGE and free repository at http://www.netlib.org. Most of
the code there is F77 and of high quality (NAG has collaborated on quite
a bit of material there). If you use it frequently, you also may want to
look for the CD mirror from Walnut Creek CDROM (No, I don't work for them).
Hope this helps,
