Subject:[NMusers] NONMEM Tips #14 - January 24, 2003 - A new setup file for installing NONMEM V with Intel Fortran 7.0 for Windows
Date:Fri, 24 Jan 2003 15:28:16 -0500

A new setup file, setup3.bat, for installing NONMEM V with Intel Fortran 7.0
for Windows has been created.
"setup3.bat" can be downloaded from the GloboMax ftp site at:

The file is used in the same manner as the original "setup.bat" file.
Arguments must be specified from the DOS command prompt, e.g.:

setup3 a c nmv ifl y

a is the diskette drive
c is the hard drive
nmv is the install directory
ifl is the compiler command (for Intel Fortran)
y is yes for optimization

(setup3.bat can also be used with Compaq/Digital, GNU G77, or MS
Powerstation 4.0, by substituting df, g77 or fl32 for ifl in the above
command line).

The critical changes to the file related to compiler optimizations:

/nologo     - avoids an overwhelming number of version messages 
/nbs        - "no backslash", prevents "\" from being interpreted as as
escape sequence
/w          - avoids numerous F95 warnings
/4Yportlib  - required for modification to flu.for for buffer flushing
/Gs         - disables stack checking
/Ob1gyti    - related to inlining of functions
/Qprec_div  - disables floating point division-to-multiplication
optimization resulting in more accurate division results 

The NONMEM files that must be modified during setup are:

1. BLKDAT.FOR: change "con" to "CONOUT$"

    J = COMMITQQ(I)"
comment out the UNIT 34 line, e.g.
"C          OPEN (UN(34),FILE=FNULL(1:I-1))"

If you have a "tip" or a better way to do things, by all means, feel free to
post them!  One of the reasons for doing this (other than good PR for
GloboMax), is to stimulate discussion.  We at GloboMax can learn from your
experience as well.
