1  Purpose

E04NXF is used to get the value of an integer optional parameter. E04NXF can be used before or after calling E04NQF.

2  Specification

REAL (KIND=nag_wp)  RW(*)

3  Description

E04NXF obtains the current value of an integer option. For example:
CALL E04NXF ('Iterations', ITNLIM, CW, IW, RW, IFAIL)
will result in the value of the optional parameter Iterations Limit being output in ITNLIM.
A complete list of optional parameters, their abbreviations, synonyms and default values is given in Section 11 in E04NQF.

5  Parameters

1:     STRING – CHARACTER(*)Input
On entry: a single valid keyword of an integer optional parameter (as described in Section 11 in E04NQF).
2:     IVALUE – INTEGEROutput
On exit: the integer value associated with the keyword in STRING.
3:     CW(*) – CHARACTER(8) arrayCommunication Array
Note: the dimension of the array CW must be at least LENCW (see E04NPF).
4:     IW(*) – INTEGER arrayCommunication Array
Note: the dimension of the array IW must be at least LENIW (see E04NPF).
5:     RW(*) – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayCommunication Array
Note: the dimension of the array RW must be at least LENRW (see E04NPF).
6:     IFAIL – INTEGERInput/Output
On entry: IFAIL must be set to 0, -1​ or ​1. If you are unfamiliar with this parameter you should refer to Section 3.3 in the Essential Introduction for details.
For environments where it might be inappropriate to halt program execution when an error is detected, the value -1​ or ​1 is recommended. If the output of error messages is undesirable, then the value 1 is recommended. Otherwise, if you are not familiar with this parameter, the recommended value is 0. When the value -1​ or ​1 is used it is essential to test the value of IFAIL on exit.
On exit: IFAIL=0 unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see Section 6).

6  Error Indicators and Warnings

If on entry IFAIL=0 or -1, explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by X04AAF).
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
The initialization routine E04NPF has not been called.
The supplied option is invalid. Check that the keywords are neither ambiguous nor misspelt.

7  Accuracy

Not applicable.
