This function splits a single dictionary into multiple dictionaries. The input dictionary should map each key to a list of n values. The function returns a list of the shared keys as its first result, followed by the n individual Gurobi tuple dictionaries (stored as tupledict objects).


data: A Python dictionary. Each key should map to a list of values.

Return value:

A list, where the first member contains the shared key values, and the following members contain the dictionaries that result from splitting the value lists from the input dictionary.

Example usage:

  keys, dict1, dict2 = multidict( {
    'key1': [1, 2],
    'key2': [1, 3],
    'key3': [1, 4] } )
