# NAG Library Routine DocumentD01ZLF

Note:  before using this routine, please read the Users' Note for your implementation to check the interpretation of bold italicised terms and other implementation-dependent details.

## 1  Purpose

D01ZLF is used to query the current value associated with an optional parameter for D01ESF and D01RAF.

## 2  Specification

 SUBROUTINE D01ZLF ( OPTSTR, IVALUE, RVALUE, CVALUE, OPTYPE, IOPTS, OPTS, IFAIL)
 INTEGER IVALUE, OPTYPE, IOPTS(*), IFAIL REAL (KIND=nag_wp) RVALUE, OPTS(*) CHARACTER(*) OPTSTR, CVALUE

## 3  Description

D01ZLF is used to query the current value associated with optional parameters. It is necessary to initialize optional parameter arrays, IOPTS and OPTS, using D01ZKF before any optional parameters are queried.
D01ZLF will normally return either an integer, real or character value dependent upon the type associated with the optional parameter being queried. Some real and integer optional parameters also return additional information in CVALUE. Whether the optional parameter queried is of integer, real or character type, and whether additional information is returned in CVALUE, is indicated by the returned value of OPTYPE.
Information on optional parameter names and whether these options are real, integer or character can be found in Section 11 in D01ESF and D01RAF.

None.

## 5  Arguments

1:     $\mathrm{OPTSTR}$ – CHARACTER(*)Input
On entry: a string identifying the option whose current value is required. See Section 11 in D01ESF and D01RAF for information on valid optional parameters. In addition, the following is a valid option:
$\mathbf{Identify}$
In which case D01ZLF returns in CVALUE the $6$ character routine name supplied to D01ZKF when the optional parameter arrays IOPTS and OPTS were initialized.
2:     $\mathrm{IVALUE}$ – INTEGEROutput
On exit: if the optional parameter supplied in OPTSTR is an integer valued argument, IVALUE will hold that value.
3:     $\mathrm{RVALUE}$ – REAL (KIND=nag_wp)Output
On exit: if the optional parameter supplied in OPTSTR is a real valued argument, RVALUE will hold that value.
4:     $\mathrm{CVALUE}$ – CHARACTER(*)Output
Note: the string returned in CVALUE will never exceed $40$ characters in length.
On exit: if the optional parameter supplied in OPTSTR is a character valued argument, CVALUE will hold that value. CVALUE will also contain additional information for some integer and real valued arguments, as indicated by OPTYPE.
5:     $\mathrm{OPTYPE}$ – INTEGEROutput
On exit: indicates whether the optional parameter supplied in OPTSTR is an integer, real or character valued argument and hence which of IVALUE, RVALUE or CVALUE holds the current value.
${\mathbf{OPTYPE}}=1$
OPTSTR is an integer valued optional parameter; its current value has been returned in IVALUE.
${\mathbf{OPTYPE}}=2$
OPTSTR is a real valued optional parameter; its current value has been returned in RVALUE.
${\mathbf{OPTYPE}}=3$
OPTSTR is a character valued optional parameter; its current value has been returned in CVALUE.
${\mathbf{OPTYPE}}=4$
OPTSTR is an integer valued optional parameter; its current value has been returned in IVALUE. Additional information has been returned in CVALUE.
${\mathbf{OPTYPE}}=5$
OPTSTR is a real valued optional parameter; its current value has been returned in RVALUE. Additional information has been returned in CVALUE.
6:     $\mathrm{IOPTS}\left(*\right)$ – INTEGER arrayCommunication Array
Note: the dimension of this array is dictated by the requirements of associated functions that must have been previously called. This array must be the same array passed as argument IOPTS in the previous call to D01ZKF.
7:     $\mathrm{OPTS}\left(*\right)$ – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayCommunication Array
Note: the dimension of this array is dictated by the requirements of associated functions that must have been previously called. This array must be the same array passed as argument OPTS in the previous call to D01ZKF.
8:     $\mathrm{IFAIL}$ – INTEGERInput/Output
On entry: IFAIL must be set to $0$, $-1\text{​ or ​}1$. 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 $-1\text{​ or ​}1$ 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 $-\mathbf{1}\text{​ or ​}\mathbf{1}$ 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).

## 6  Error 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:
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=11$
On entry, the optional parameter in OPTSTR was not recognized: ${\mathbf{OPTSTR}}=〈\mathit{\text{value}}〉$.
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=41$
On entry, OPTSTR indicates a character optional parameter, but CVALUE is too short to hold the stored value. The returned value will be truncated.
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=61$
The arrays IOPTS and OPTS have either not been initialized, have become corrupted, or are not compatible with this option setting routine.
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=-99$
See Section 3.9 in How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation for further information.
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=-399$

Not applicable.

## 8  Parallelism and Performance

D01ZLF is not threaded in any implementation.
