Running the example

The Gurobi MATLAB examples can be found in the <installdir>/examples/matlab/ directory of your Gurobi installation (the default <installdir> for Gurobi 8.1.1 is /Library/gurobi811/mac64 for Mac). To run one of the examples, first change to this directory in MATLAB, then type its name into the MATLAB prompt. For example, to run example mip1, you would say:

>> cd /Library/gurobi811/mac64/examples/matlab
>> mip1

If Gurobi was successfully set up for use in MATLAB, you should see the following output in the command window:

          status: 'OPTIMAL'
     versioninfo: [1x1 struct]
         runtime: 3.2401e-04
          objval: 3
               x: [3x1 double]
           slack: [2x1 double]
    poolobjbound: 3
            pool: [1x2 struct]
          mipgap: 0
        objbound: 3
       objboundc: 3
       itercount: 0
    baritercount: 0
       nodecount: 0

x 1
y 0
z 1
Obj: 3.000000e+00

From all this data we only use the fields objval and x in our example. Please refer to the reference manual for a complete description of all the other output fields.

In order to get more familiar with the Gurobi MATLAB interface, we encourage you to browse through the files in the MATLAB example directory. Often these examples can be used as starting points for your own optimization projects.
