Choose how accurately the algorithm will compute the minimum in a line search


Alias: none

Argument(s): REAL

Default: 0.9 (inaccurate line search)


The linesearch_tolerance setting controls the accuracy of the line search. The smaller the value (between 0 and 1), the more accurately the algorithm will attempt to compute a precise minimum along the search direction.
