The routine may be called by the names e04tbf or nagf_opt_handle_enable.
e04tcf and e04tbf form a pair of routines which allow you to temporarily disable and then re-enable parts of a model. This is particularly useful when a sequence of similar problems needs to be solved, to identify how a particular constraint or variable affects the solution, or to switch between previously defined constraints which are somewhat related to each other.
e04tbf may be used to re-enable a component of the model previously disabled by a call to e04tcf. The components to be re-enabled are identified by supplying the same value of comp and idx as used in the call to e04tcf when they were disabled. All newly created components of the model are enabled. Calling this routine on enabled components is not an error but has no effect.
See Section 3.1 in the E04 Chapter Introduction for more details about the NAG optimization modelling suite.
1: – Type (c_ptr)Input
On entry: the handle to the problem. It needs to be initialized (e.g., by e04raf) and must not be changed between calls to the NAG optimization modelling suite.
2: – Character(*)Input
On entry: the type of the component of the model to be enabled. comp is case insensitive.
Nonlinear residuals in the nonlinear least squares objective function (see e04rmf).
, , , , , , , , , , , , , or .
3: – IntegerInput
On entry: the number of elements in the index set.
4: – Integer arrayInput
On entry: the index set of components comp to be enabled. The elements may be supplied in any order.
, for , where is the total number of the given components (e.g., decision variables) in the model.
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:
The supplied handle does not define a valid handle to the data structure for the NAG optimization modelling suite. It has not been properly initialized or it has been corrupted.
The problem cannot be modified right now, the solver is running.
On entry, . Constraint: .
On entry, . Constraint: , , , , , or .

On entry, and . This component has been deleted.
This error can only occur when trying to enable a cone constraint that has been deleted by setting its size to with e04rbf.

8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
e04tbf is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
