6Error Indicators and Warnings
Dynamic memory allocation failed.
See Section 3.1.2 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface for further information.
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.

On entry, .
The function has been called with an argument too large in absolute magnitude. There is a danger of overflow. The result returned is the value of at the closest argument for which a valid call could be made.
If and are the relative errors in the argument and result, respectively, then in principle
That is the relative error in the argument, , is amplified by a factor, approximately . The equality should hold if is greater than the machine precision ( is a result of data errors etc.) but, if is simply a result of round-off in the machine representation of , then it is possible that an extra figure may be lost in internal calculation round-off.
The behaviour of the error amplification factor can be seen in the following graph:
It should be noted that for
where is the absolute error in the argument.
8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
s10abc is not threaded in any implementation.
This example reads values of the argument from a file, evaluates the function at each value of and prints the results.
