Solving a Simple Model – The Gurobi Command Line
Now that the Gurobi Optimizer is installed and the license key has been tested, you're ready to solve a simple math programming model.
This section includes instructions on how to create a simple math programming model and how to use the Gurobi command-line interface to compute an optimal solution. If you are already familiar with mathematical modeling and LP-format files, feel free to skip to the end of this section.
Note that this section gives only a brief glimpse into the capabilities of the Gurobi command-line interface. This interface plays a number of different roles. In addition to providing a simple interface for solving a model, it can also be used to launch a model on a Compute Server or on a cloud system, it can check on the status of a token server, and it provides tools that allow you to manage jobs and administer a Compute Server. If you'd like additional information, consult the Command-Line Tool section of our Reference Manual.
