CL Name Style:

1 Purpose

To supply optional parameters to e04ufc from an external file.

2 Specification

#include <nag.h>
void  e04udc (Nag_FileID fileid, Nag_Boolean lwsav[], Integer iwsav[], double rwsav[], NagError *fail)
The function may be called by the names: e04udc, nag_opt_nlp1_option_file or nag_opt_nlp_revcomm_option_set_file.

3 Description

e04udc may be used to supply values for optional parameters to e04ufc. e04udc reads an external file and each line of the file defines a single optional parameter. It is only necessary to supply values for those arguments whose values are to be different from their default values.
Each optional parameter is defined by a single character string, 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:
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.
The file containing the options must start with Begin and must finish with End. An example of a valid options file is:
Begin * Example options file 
   Print level = 5 
Printing of user-supplied options 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 e04ufc 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 e04ufc.
A complete list of optional parameters, their abbreviations, synonyms and default values is given in Section 12 in e04ufc.
