e05jgf (bnd_mcs_optset_real)


    1  Purpose
    7  Accuracy
    10  Example


e05jgf may be used to supply individual real optional parameters to e05jbf. The initialization routine e05jaf must have been called before calling e05jgf.


Fortran Interface
Subroutine e05jgf ( optstr, rvalue, comm, lcomm, ifail)
Integer, Intent (In):: lcomm
Integer, Intent (Inout):: ifail
Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (In):: rvalue
Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (Inout):: comm(lcomm)
Character (*), Intent (In):: optstr
C Header Interface
#include nagmk26.h
void  e05jgf_ (const char *optstr, const double *rvalue, double comm[], const Integer *lcomm, Integer *ifail, const Charlen length_optstr)


e05jgf may be used to supply values for real optional parameters to e05jbf. It is only necessary to call e05jgf for those arguments whose values are to be different from their default values. One call to e05jgf sets one argument value.
Each real optional parameter is defined by a single character string in optstr and the corresponding value in rvalue. For example the following illustrates how the local searches tolerance could be defined:
loctol = 1.0E-10
Call e05jgf ('Local Searches Tolerance', Loctol, comm, lcomm, ifail)
A complete list of optional parameters, their symbolic names and default values is given in Section 12 in e05jbf.




1:     optstr – Character(*)Input
On entry: a string identifying a real-valued optional parameter (as described in Section 12 in e05jbf).
2:     rvalue – Real (Kind=nag_wp)Input
On entry: the value associated with the optional parameter in optstr.
3:     commlcomm – Real (Kind=nag_wp) arrayCommunication Array
On exit: comm must not be altered between calls to any of the routines e05jbf, e05jcf, e05jdf, e05jef, e05jff, e05jgf, e05jhf, e05jjf, e05jkf and e05jlf.
4:     lcomm – IntegerInput
On entry: the dimension of the array comm as declared in the (sub)program from which e05jgf is called.
Constraint: lcomm100.
5:     ifail – IntegerInput/Output
On entry: ifail must be set to 0, -1​ or ​1. If you are unfamiliar with this argument you should refer to Section 3.4 in How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation for details.
For environments where it might be inappropriate to halt program execution when an error is detected, the value -1​ or ​1 is recommended. If the output of error messages is undesirable, then the value 1 is recommended. Otherwise, if you are not familiar with this argument, the recommended value is 0. When the value -1​ or ​1 is used it is essential to test the value of ifail on exit.
On exit: ifail=0 unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see Section 6).

Error Indicators and Warnings

If on entry ifail=0 or -1, explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by x04aaf).
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
Initialization routine e05jaf has not been called.
On entry, lcomm=value.
Constraint: lcomm100.
The supplied optional parameter is invalid. A keyword or keyword combination was not recognized.
Attempt to assign an out-of-bounds value of Infinite Bound Size (infbnd): infbnd=value.
Attempt to assign too small a value of Local Searches Tolerance (loctol): loctol=value.
Attempt to assign too small a value of Target Objective Error (objerr): objerr=value.
Attempt to assign too small a value of Target Objective Safeguard (objsfg): objsfg=value.
An unexpected error has been triggered by this routine. Please contact NAG.

Parallelism and Performance

e05jgf is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
Please consult the X06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this routine. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.

Further Comments

e05jcf or e05jdf may also be used to supply real optional parameters to e05jbf.
