Building and running the examples
Python is an interpreted language, so no explicit compilation step is required to run the examples. For Mac platforms, you can simply type the following in the Gurobi Python example directory (<installdir>/examples/python):
If you are a Python user and wish to use Gurobi from within your own Python environment, we recommend that you use the Anaconda Python distribution. Anaconda includes a number of very useful packages, and the Gurobi Anaconda package simplifies the installation process.
You can also install the
gurobipy module directly into other
Python environments. The steps for doing this depend on your
On Mac OS, you will need to open a terminal window, change
your current directory to the Gurobi <installdir> (the
directory that contains the file setup.py), and issue the
python setup.py install
Unless you are using your own private Python installation, you will need to run this command as super-user.
gurobipy is successfully installed, you can type
python mip1.py (more generally, you can type
from gurobipy import * in your Python environment).
