NAG Library Routine Document
To supply individual optional parameters to E04NKF/E04NKA
. More precisely, E04NMF must be used to supply optional parameters to E04NKF
and E04NMA must be used to supply optional parameters to E04NKA
E04NMA is a version of E04NMF that has additional arguments in order to make it safe for use in multithreaded applications (see Section 5
). The initialization routine E04WBF must
have been called before calling E04NMA.
2.1 Specification for E04NMF
2.2 Specification for E04NMA
E04NMF/E04NMA may be used to supply values for optional parameters to
. It is only necessary to call E04NMF/E04NMA for those arguments whose values are to be different from their default values. One call to E04NMF/E04NMA sets one argument value.
Each optional parameter is defined by a single character string,
of up to
consisting of one or more items. The items associated with a given option must be separated by spaces, or equals signs
. 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 real value. Such numbers may be up to contiguous characters
in Fortran's I, F, E or D 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.
For E04NMF, each user-specified option is normally printed as it is defined, on the current advisory message unit (see X04ABF
), but this printing may be suppressed using the keyword Nolist
. Thus the statement
CALL E04NMF ('Nolist')
suppresses printing of this and subsequent options. Printing will automatically be turned on again after a call to E04NKF
and may be turned on again at any time using the keyword List
For E04NMA printing is turned off by default, but may be turned on at any time using the keyword List
Optional parameter settings are preserved following a call to E04NKF/E04NKA
and so the keyword Defaults
is provided to allow you to reset all the optional parameters to their default values before a subsequent call to E04NKF/E04NKA
A complete list of optional parameters, their abbreviations, synonyms and default values is given in Section 12
- 1: – CHARACTER(*)Input
: a single valid option string (as described in Section 3
and in Section 12
- Note: the following are additional arguments for specific use with E04NMA. Users of E04NMF therefore need not read the remainder of this description.
- 2: – LOGICAL arrayCommunication Array
- 3: – INTEGER arrayCommunication Array
- 4: – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayCommunication Array
The arrays LWSAV
and RWSAV must not
be altered between calls to any of the routines E04NMA, E04NKA
- 5: – INTEGEROutput
: contains zero if a valid option string has been supplied and a
otherwise (see Section 6
6 Error Indicators and Warnings
The supplied option is invalid. Check that the keywords are neither ambiguous nor misspelt.
8 Parallelism and Performance
E04NMF/E04NMA is not threaded in any implementation.
