`N1` |
size of Sample 1 |

`N2` |
size of sample 2 |

`EPS` |
noninferiority margin to the difference of success probabilities |

`SW` |
width of the search grid for determining the maximum of the rejection probability on the common boundary of the hypotheses |

`NSUB` |
number of subintervals for partitioning the range of integration |

`ALPHA` |
target significance level |

`MAXH` |
maximum number of interval halving steps to be carried out in finding the maximally admissible nominal level |

The program uses 96-point Gauss-Legendre quadrature on each of the NSUB intervals into which the range of integration is partitioned.

`N1` |
size of Sample 1 |

`N2` |
size of sample 2 |

`EPS` |
noninferiority margin to the difference of success probabilities |

`NSUB` |
number of subintervals for partitioning the range of integration |

`SW` |
width of the search grid for determining the maximum of the rejection probability on the common boundary of the hypotheses |

`ALPHA0` |
result of the search for the largest admissible nominal level |

`SIZE0` |
size of the critical region corresponding to |

`SIZE_UNC` |
size of the critical region of the test at uncorrected nominal level |
