## 1Purpose

e05jef may be used to supply individual ‘ON’/‘OFF’-valued character optional parameters to e05jbf. The initialization routine e05jaf must have been called before calling e05jef.

## 2Specification

Fortran Interface
 Subroutine e05jef ( comm,
 Integer, Intent (In) :: lcomm Integer, Intent (Inout) :: ifail Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (Inout) :: comm(lcomm) Character (*), Intent (In) :: optstr, cvalue
#include <nag.h>
 void e05jef_ (const char *optstr, const char *cvalue, double comm[], const Integer *lcomm, Integer *ifail, const Charlen length_optstr, const Charlen length_cvalue)
The routine may be called by the names e05jef or nagf_glopt_bnd_mcs_optset_char.

## 3Description

e05jef may be used to supply values for ‘ON’/‘OFF’-valued character optional parameters to e05jbf. It is only necessary to call e05jef for those arguments whose values are to be different from their default values. One call to e05jef sets one argument value.
Each ‘ON’/‘OFF’-valued character optional parameter is defined by a single character string in optstr and the corresponding value in cvalue. For example, the following allows local searches to be turned off:
```lcsrch = 'off'
Call e05jef ('Local Searches', lcsrch, comm, lcomm, ifail)```
A complete list of optional parameters, their symbolic names and default values is given in Section 12 in e05jbf.

None.

## 5Arguments

1: $\mathbf{optstr}$Character(*) Input
On entry: a string defining a single ‘ON’/‘OFF’-valued character optional parameter (as described in Section 12 in e05jbf).
2: $\mathbf{cvalue}$Character(*) Input
On entry: the ‘ON’/‘OFF’ value associated with the keyword in optstr.
3: $\mathbf{comm}\left({\mathbf{lcomm}}\right)$Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Communication 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: $\mathbf{lcomm}$Integer Input
On entry: the dimension of the array comm as declared in the (sub)program from which e05jef is called.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{lcomm}}\ge 100$.
5: $\mathbf{ifail}$Integer Input/Output
On entry: ifail must be set to $0$, $-1$ or $1$ to set behaviour on detection of an error; these values have no effect when no error is detected.
A value of $0$ causes the printing of an error message and program execution will be halted; otherwise program execution continues. A value of $-1$ means that an error message is printed while a value of $1$ means that it is not.
If halting is not appropriate, the value $-1$ or $1$ is recommended. If message printing is undesirable, then the value $1$ is recommended. Otherwise, the value $0$ is recommended. When the value $-\mathbf{1}$ or $\mathbf{1}$ is used it is essential to test the value of ifail on exit.
On exit: ${\mathbf{ifail}}={\mathbf{0}}$ unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see Section 6).

## 6Error Indicators and Warnings

If on entry ${\mathbf{ifail}}=0$ or $-1$, explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by x04aaf).
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
${\mathbf{ifail}}=1$
Initialization routine e05jaf has not been called.
On entry, ${\mathbf{lcomm}}=⟨\mathit{\text{value}}⟩$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{lcomm}}\ge 100$.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=2$
The supplied optional parameter is invalid. A keyword or keyword combination was not recognized.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=3$
Attempt to assign an illegal value of Local Searches ($\mathit{lcsrch}$): $\mathit{lcsrch}=⟨\mathit{\text{value}}⟩$.
Attempt to assign an illegal value of Repeatability ($\mathit{repeat}$): $\mathit{repeat}=⟨\mathit{\text{value}}⟩$.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=-99$
