The routine may be called by the names e05jdf or nagf_glopt_bnd_mcs_optset_string.
e05jdf may be used to supply values for optional parameters to e05jbf. It is only necessary to call e05jdf for those arguments whose values are to be different from their default values. One call to e05jdf sets one argument value.
Each optional parameter is defined by a single character string, of up to characters, consisting of one or more items. The items associated with a given optional parameter must be separated by spaces, or equals signs . Alphabetic characters may be upper or lower case. The string
Static Limit = 100
is an example of a string used to set an optional parameter. For each optional parameter 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.
For e05jdf, each user-specified optional parameter is not normally printed as it is defined, but this printing may be turned on using the keyword List.
Thus the statement
Call e05jdf ('List', comm, lcomm, ifail)
turns on printing of this and subsequent options.
Printing may be turned off again using the keyword Nolist.
Optional parameter settings are preserved following a call to e05jbf 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 e05jbf.
A complete list of optional parameters, their symbolic names and default values is given in Section 12 in e05jbf.
1: – Character(*)Input
On entry: a string defining a single optional parameter (as described in Section 3 and in Section 12 in e05jbf). The implied data type (character, integer or real) of each value to set must match that expected by the optional parameter.
On entry: the dimension of the array comm as declared in the (sub)program from which e05jdf is called.
4: – 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.
The value to be set could not be parsed. Check that it specifies a valid integer or real value.
An unexpected error has been triggered by this routine. Please

8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
e05jdf is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
