The routine may be called by the names e05jef or nagf_glopt_bnd_mcs_optset_char.
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:
On entry: the dimension of the array comm as declared in the (sub)program from which e05jef is called.
5: – IntegerInput/Output
On entry: ifail must be set to , or to set behaviour on detection of an error; these values have no effect when no error is detected.
A value of causes the printing of an error message and program execution will be halted; otherwise program execution continues. A value of means that an error message is printed while a value of means that it is not.
If halting is not appropriate, the value or is recommended. If message printing is undesirable, then the value is recommended. Otherwise, the value is recommended. When the value or is used it is essential to test the value of ifail on exit.
On exit: unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see Section 6).
6Error Indicators and Warnings
If on entry or , explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by x04aaf).
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
Initialization routine e05jaf has not been called.
On entry, .
The supplied optional parameter is invalid. A keyword or keyword combination was not recognized.
An unexpected error has been triggered by this routine. Please

8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
e05jef is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
Please consult the X06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this routine. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.
e05jcfore05jdf may also be used to supply ‘ON’/‘OFF’-valued character optional parameters to e05jbf.
