[Ipopt] How to iteratively solve IPOPT problem using the C++ interface ?

Dear All,

I am trying to solve an optimization problem, that has to be solved for
different values of frequencies, that are to be read from a file.

How do I pass these values to 'mynlp' object ?

For example, consider the example C++ code from the IPOPT github repo:

Here the "mynlp" object is instantiated, while the member functions exist
in :

Now, I want to be able to solve the IPOPT problem iteratively with a
different value of frequency that is needed in the "eval_g". To do this, I
can write a for loop in "main" to read frequencies from a file, but I want
to know, how to pass those values to "eval_g" ?

So, ultimately the code would be :

   for (//execute as long as file not empty)
        omega2 = // frequency read from file
          // Ask Ipopt to solve the problem, using this new frequency, that
will result in a new "eval_g"
         status = app->OptimizeTNLP(mynlp);
