PGI Adds IMSL Fortran Numerical Library for Windows

The Portland Group has announced that it is bundling the IMSL Fortran Numerical Library from Visual Numerics with PGI's multi-core optimizing parallel Fortran compilers running under Windows. The IMSL Fortran Library is a comprehensive set of embeddable mathematical and statistical functions written in C, C#, Java, and Fortran.

"The IMSL Fortran Library is one of the most widely used math libraries for technical computing applications on Windows and is very popular with our Linux customers," said Douglas Miles, director, The Portland Group. "We've been working with Visual Numerics to bring this valuable resource to PGI's complete line of Windows compilers including support on native Windows, the Windows Subsystem for Unix Applications (SUA), and within applications built using PGI Visual Fortran."

PGI compilers and tools are used predominantly on 64-bit and 32-bit Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows workstations, servers, and clusters based on microprocessors from AMD and Intel. The Portland Group's PGI Workstation includes compilers and tools for building, debugging, and profiling parallel 64-bit and 32-bit Fortran, C/C++ applications within a UNIX- and Linux-compatible development environment. Compiler features include automatic and user-directed parallelization and optimizations for extracting maximum performance from multi-core processors. In addition to UNIX migration features, the PGI Visual Fortran compiler is integrated with Visual Studio 2005 development environment. A trial version of PGI compilers is available for download.
