Hi,
As you said the range of X should be passed using UB, LB arguments.

The others you can pass using the equality constraints

function E = eq_cons (X)
E = [sum(X(X<0)); sum(X(X>0))] - [-1; 1];
endfunction

Note that this function is problematic because of the jump introduced
when an element changes signs, but give it a try.

I am not sure but this alternative might be more suited for sqp (but
problably slower due to the copy of X)

function E = eq_cons (X)
Y = X;
Y(Y<0) *= -1;
E = sum([X Y]).' - [0; 2];
endfunction

I get the same results for dim(x) = 10,..,100 with little difference
sin perfomrnace, but maybe your cost is more complex than my test:

g =@(X)  [sum(X(X<0)); sum(X(X>0))] - [-1; 1];
c =@(x) sumsq(x);
x0 = 2*rand(100,1)-1;
tic; [x obj info iter nf l] = sqp(x0,c,g,[],-1,1); toc

```
