Documentation for PORT

The Lucent Technologies Inc. PORT Library provides support for

A master index of functions is also available, together with a permuted index (sometimes called a KWIC (KeyWord In Context) index) in PDF and PostScript form.

For an overview of the PORT library, visit the .pdf or .ps form of the library introduction.

Linking with locally-installed libraries

Fortran code can be linked with the PORT library like this:

    f77 -o fcode fcode.f -L/usr/local/lib -lport

Related libraries: EISPACK, MINPACK, LINPACK, and LAPACK

Related libraries include EISPACK (for matrix eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and singular-value decompositions), MINPACK (for function minimization and least-squares solutions), LINPACK (for linear equations, least-squares, and singular-value decomposition), and LAPACK (for linear equations, least-squares, singular-value decomposition, and eigenvalue/eigenvector solution).
