nag_glopt_bnd_mcs_optset_file (e05jcc) may be used to supply values for optional arguments to
nag_glopt_bnd_mcs_solve (e05jbc). nag_glopt_bnd_mcs_optset_file (e05jcc) reads an external file
which has been opened by a call to nag_open_file (x04acc). Each
line of the file defines a single optional argument. It is only necessary to supply values for those arguments whose values are to be different from their default values.
Each optional argument is defined by a single character string,
consisting of one or more items. The items associated with a given optional argument 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 argument. For each optional argument 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.
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 implied data type (character, integer or real) of each value to set must match that expected by the corresponding optional argument.
The file containing the optional arguments must start with Begin and must finish with End. An example of a valid options file is:
Begin * Example options file
Static Limit = 500
