# lp_get(++ParamName, ?Value)

Obtain the value of a global parameter.
*ParamName*
- Atom
*Value*
- Variable, integer, float or atom

## Description

Eplex have a number of global (i.e. not specific to a
particular problem) parameters. These can be queried using this
predicate.
`optimizer`
- Returns the name of the external solver, currently
'cplex', 'xpress' or 'osi'.
`optimizer_version`
- Returns an integer derived from the version of the
external solver (for osi, the version is the actual solvers
used, including any significant third-party packages such as
sparse matrix ordering packages required by the barrier solver)
`presolve`
- Returns the default presolve setting for solver setup, i.e. the
presolve setting that a solver state would be given if it was not
directly specified during setup. The value is 1 if the default is
to have presolve on, and 0 if off. Note that this is a change from
previous versions of eplex, where this parameter is directly
connected to the external solver's own presolve parameter. However,
the solver may have more than one parameter for presolve settings,
and these may take on more values than 0 and 1. In such cases,
eplex will set the parameters(s) to some default value(s)
corresponding to presolve being off and on. These parameters can be
accessed directly using the optimizer_param option if required.
`timeout`
- Returns the default time-out setting that a solver state would
be given if it was not directly specified during setup. Value is
0 if there is no time-out.
`standalone`
- Value is `yes', as this is the stand-alone version of Eplex.
as the external solver is used for keeping the bounds. This option
allows programmer to write code that needs to distinguish between
the stand-alone and the non-stand-alone versions of Eplex.
`optimizer_param(Param)`
- Get the Value of the external solver's parameter
`Param`.
The exact behaviour and available parameters are dependent on the
external solver: if the external solver has only problem specific
parameters (e.g. XPRESS-MP 13 and later), this gets the default
setting that would be used for new problems; if the external solver
has global parameters, this gets the global value for the parameter.
If Param is not a valid parameter for the solver, an out of range
error is raised. See lp_get/3 for more details on the parameters.
