The Portland Group Inc. (PGI), a wholly owned subsidiary of STMicroelectronics and a supplier of compilers and development tools for high-performance computing (HPC), has announced that the IMSL Fortran Numerical Library from Visual Numerics Inc. is available for PGI's line of multicore-optimizing parallel Fortran compilers running under Microsoft Windows OS.

The IMSL Fortran Library is a comprehensive set of popular mathematical and statistical functions. Software developers can use the prewritten functions included within the library as building blocks in their software applications. This library frees programmers from the necessity of developing their own equivalent functions. Both the library and numerical algorithms within it have a reputation for quality and performance across an extensive range of compilers and OS environments.

"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."

"We are pleased to be working closely with The Portland Group to bring the IMSL Fortran Library to their latest generation of Windows Fortran compilers," said Tim Leite, director of corporate development at Visual Numerics. "PGI compilers are popular in technical and high-performance computing, a key target market segment for the IMSL Libraries. With this new product we extend to PGI and HPC developers on Windows the same high standards for quality and reliability that IMSL Libraries are known for worldwide."
