# NAG CL Interfacee04uec (nlp1_​option_​string)

## 1Purpose

To supply individual optional parameters to e04ufc.

## 2Specification

 #include
 void e04uec (const char *str, Nag_Boolean lwsav[], Integer iwsav[], double rwsav[], NagError *fail)
The function may be called by the names: e04uec, nag_opt_nlp1_option_string or nag_opt_nlp_revcomm_option_set_string.

## 3Description

e04uec may be used to supply values for optional parameters to e04ufc. It is only necessary to call e04uec for those arguments whose values are to be different from their default values. One call to e04uec sets one argument value.
Each optional parameter is defined by a single character string, consisting of one or more items. The items associated with a given option must be separated by spaces, or equals signs $\left[=\right]$. Alphabetic characters may be upper or lower case. The string
`Print Level = 1`
is an example of a string used to set an optional parameter. For each option the string contains one or more of the following items:
• a mandatory keyword;
• a phrase that qualifies the keyword;
• a number that specifies an Integer or double value. Such numbers may be up to $40$ contiguous characters which can be read using C's d or g formats, terminated by a space if this is not the last item on the line.
Blank strings and comments are ignored. A comment begins with an asterisk (*) and all subsequent characters in the string are regarded as part of the comment.
Optional parameter settings are preserved following a call to e04ufc and so the keyword ${\mathbf{Defaults}}$ is provided to allow you to reset all the optional parameters to their default values before a subsequent call to e04ufc.
A complete list of optional parameters, their abbreviations, synonyms and default values is given in Section 12 in e04ufc.

None.

## 5Arguments

1: $\mathbf{str}$const char * Input
On entry: a single valid option string (as described in Section 3 and in Section 12 in e04ufc).
2: $\mathbf{lwsav}\left[120\right]$Nag_Boolean Communication Array
3: $\mathbf{iwsav}\left[610\right]$Integer Communication Array
4: $\mathbf{rwsav}\left[475\right]$double Communication Array
The arrays lwsav, iwsav and rwsav MUST NOT be altered between calls to any of the functions e04udc, e04uec, e04ufc or e04wbc.
5: $\mathbf{fail}$NagError * Input/Output
The NAG error argument (see Section 7 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface).

## 6Error Indicators and Warnings

NE_ALLOC_FAIL
Dynamic memory allocation failed.
See Section 3.1.2 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface for further information.
On entry, argument $〈\mathit{\text{value}}〉$ had an illegal value.
NE_INTERNAL_ERROR
An internal error has occurred in this function. Check the function call and any array sizes. If the call is correct then please contact NAG for assistance.
See Section 7.5 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface for further information.
NE_INVALID_OPTION
The supplied option string is invalid. Supplied value was: $〈\mathit{\text{value}}〉$. Check that the keywords are neither ambiguous nor misspelt.
NE_NO_LICENCE
Your licence key may have expired or may not have been installed correctly.
See Section 8 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface for further information.

Not applicable.

## 8Parallelism and Performance

e04uec is not threaded in any implementation.
