NAG and quant development: When will you be releasing Mark 23 for 64bit Linux and gfortran?

 

–This implementation is planned for release in two-three months. I recognise you might be surprised that this release is not yet available. We had hoped that the Intel Compiler build of the 64 Linux Library could be used with the GFortran compiler. Unfortunately our testing find otherwise.

No doubt you know how flexible our Windows build is. A quick reminder, it is callable from many different compilers http://www.nag.co.uk/doc/inun/fl23/dll4ml/un.html it’s a shame we can’t do the same magic with our Linux implementation.

In case you are interested the NAG Fortran Library 64 bit Linux Intel Compiler implementation can be used with another compiler (Lahey but not Intel), seehttp://www.nag.co.uk/doc/inun/fl23/l6idcl/postrelease.html

Sorry I can’t be of more help. I’ll drop you a note when we release the GFortran version.

 

I can use Intel Compiler while I wait…it’s just more of a pain that’s all. Our Intel licenses use network licenses so I have to be connected (via VPN) to the university network when I compile. This rules out playing on the train 🙂

 

“This implementation is planned for release in two-three months. I recognise you might be surprised that this release is not yet available. We had hoped that the Intel Compiler build of the 64 Linux Library could be used with the GFortran compiler. Unfortunately our testing find otherwise.”

Any hope for the PathScale compiler (pathf90/95)?

P.S. I could check it myself if provided with a temporary license for Mark 23 for 64bit Linux.

 

This might work with Intel Compiler build of the 64 Linux Fortran Library.

We have not tested this library using PathScale. If you would like to, then please do so. You would have to re-compile the modules. Seehttp://www.nag.co.uk/doc/inun/fl23/l6idcl/postrelease.html

If you needed help during this work, please reach out direct to support@nag.co.uk

Let us know when you would like to receive the trial key and we’ll also give you the download link.

PS We do have a version of our library for PathScale, but it is not the latest release see Installer Notes for more detail http://www.nag.co.uk/doc/inun/fl21/l6adsl/in.html

 

thanks for the reply and the links. Since few days I’m testing PathScale performance on certain Computational EM open-source software. I was planning to incorporate one my own linear iterative solvers in that software and it would be nice to have access to NAG as I might use some of NAG routines in the code (haven’t decided yet).

 

The Fortran Library, Mark 23 for linux, gfortran is now available… For further information see installers notes here http://www.nag.co.uk/doc/inun/fl23/l6adfl/in.html

 

Installed on my personal work machine, my laptop, the Manchester University central supercomputer,made available via our internal application distribution website and sent to the department of Maths central Linux sysadmin.

Not that we were keen for this release or anything 😉

 

 

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
