I'm not sure I understand what you mean by visualizing the relative error. 
Do you mean generating some sort of graphic which helps you to find which 
particular partial derivatives have how much error?

In either case, the code for the derivative checker is in


in the method


We could set things up so that another method is called when a new Ipopt 
option would be set, and of course it would be nice to include such a new 
method in the Ipopt distribution.

Does that answer your question?
