- Notes
handle_read_file
reads a file in one of the supported file formats and stores the data in a new handle. The supported formats are MPS and its derivatives (for LP, QP, SOCP) and sparse SDPA for linear semidefinite programming problems. See Further Comments for more details on the supported file formats. It might be useful to refer to the file format you use to fully understand the possible error messages. Once the file is successfuly processed, the problem can be solved by a compatible solver from the suite or queried via the printing functionhandle_print()
. Once the problem is not needed any more,handle_free()
should be called to destroy the handle and deallocate the memory held within. See the E04 Introduction for more details about the NAG optimization modelling suite. Also see the E04 Introduction for more details on the standard formulations of the optimization problems (e.g., LP, QP, SOCP and SDP) for better understanding on the notations used in this document.
