RLP format

The RLP format is identical to the LP format, except in how objects are named when files are written. When writing an LP format file, the Gurobi optimizer refers to constraints and variables using their given names. When writing an RLP format file, the Gurobi optimizer ignores the given names and instead refers to the variables using names that are based on variable or constraint characteristics. The constraint name depends solely on the associated row number: row i gets name ci. The variable name depends on the type of the variable, the column number of the variable in the constraint matrix, and the number of non-zero coefficients in the associated column. A continuous variable in column 7 with column length 2 would get name C7(2), for example. A binary variable with the same characteristics would get name B7(2).
