1  Purpose

E04NTF may be used to supply individual integer optional parameters to E04NQF. The initialization routine E04NPF must have been called before calling E04NTF.

2  Specification

REAL (KIND=nag_wp)  RW(*)

3  Description

E04NTF may be used to supply values for integer optional parameters to E04NQF. It is only necessary to call E04NTF for those parameters whose values are to be different from their default values. One call to E04NTF sets one parameter value.
Each integer optional parameter is defined by a single character string in STRING and the corresponding value in IVALUE. For example, the following allows the iteration limit to be defined:
ITNLIM = 1000
IF (M > 500) ITNLIM = 500
CALL E04NTF ('Iterations', ITNLIM, CW, IW, RW, IFAIL)
Optional parameter settings are preserved following a call to E04NQF 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 E04NQF.
A complete list of optional parameters, their abbreviations, synonyms and default values is given in Section 11 in E04NQF.

5  Parameters

1:     STRING – CHARACTER(*)Input
On entry: a single valid keyword of an integer optional parameter (as described in Section 11 in E04NQF).
2:     IVALUE – INTEGERInput
On entry: an integer value associated with the keyword in STRING.
3:     CW(*) – CHARACTER(8) arrayCommunication Array
Note: the dimension of the array CW must be at least LENCW (see E04NPF).
4:     IW(*) – INTEGER arrayCommunication Array
Note: the dimension of the array IW must be at least LENIW (see E04NPF).
5:     RW(*) – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayCommunication Array
Note: the dimension of the array RW must be at least LENRW (see E04NPF).
6:     IFAIL – INTEGERInput/Output
On entry: IFAIL must be set to 0, -1​ or ​1. If you are unfamiliar with this parameter you should refer to Section 3.3 in the Essential Introduction for details.
For environments where it might be inappropriate to halt program execution when an error is detected, the value -1​ 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 parameter, the recommended value is 0. When the value -1​ or ​1 is used it is essential to test the value of IFAIL on exit.
On exit: IFAIL=0 unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see Section 6).

6  Error Indicators and Warnings

If on entry 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:
The initialization routine E04NPF has not been called.
The supplied option is invalid. Check that the keywords are neither ambiguous nor misspelt.

7  Accuracy

Not applicable.

8  Further Comments

E04NRF or E04NSF may also be used to supply integer optional parameters to E04NQF.

See Section 9 in E04NQF and E04NRF.
