DISLIN graphics library

DISLIN graphics library

Hi there,

has anyone of you installed the Dislin graphics library (available here) for Intel Fortran Compiler?
I try to install it using the references on the site (setting the PATH directory etc), but it still doesn't work, and the compiler can't find it.
Can anyone explain me how to do, or suggest me how to manually link the libraries?

Everything should be made as easy as possible, but not easier

RE: DISLIN graphics library

Which platform (windows/unix) and how are you setting the PATH?

On unix, -L will set the path and -l will set the library.  Say the library is libfred.a and it lives in /opt/dislin/lib.  Your link line will look like -L/opt/dislin/lib -lfred.

On Windows it is a different story.  The DLLs and libs need to live somewhere along your PATH.  Check whether you have missed out a semicolon somewhere or typed in a colon instead of a semicolon.
