Getting Started

The API is fairly low-level at the moment

Load a problem

problem =
  Glpk.load_problem(
    obj_dir: :minimize,
    obj_coef: [8, 10],
    mat_ia: [1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3],
    mat_ja: [1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2],
    mat_ar: [2, 3, 2, 2, 4, 1],
    col_kind: [:integer, :continuous],
    col_lower: [0, 0],
    col_upper: [1e30, 1e30],
    row_lower: [7, 12, 6],
    row_upper: [1e30, 1e30, 1e30]
  )

Solve

problem.solve

Write the problem to an LP or MPS file

problem.write_lp("hello.lp")
# or
problem.write_mps("hello.mps")

Read a problem from an LP or MPS file

# or
problem = Glpk.read_mps("hello.mps")
