We study a nondifferentiable fractional programming problem as follows: subject to , where is a semiconnected subset in a locally convex topological vector space , , and , . If , , and , , are arc-directionally differentiable, semipreinvex maps with respect to a continuous map satisfying and , then the necessary and sufficient conditions for optimality of are established.
