C Interface

This section will work through a simple C example in order to illustrate the use of the Gurobi C interface. The example builds a simple Mixed Integer Programming model, optimizes it, and outputs the optimal objective value. This section assumes that you are already familiar with the C programming language. If not, a variety of books are available for learning the language (for example, The C Programming Language, by Kernighan and Ritchie).

Our example optimizes the following model:

maximize x + y + 2 z    
subject to x + 2 y + 3 z <span>$</span>\leq<span>$</span> 4
  x + y     <span>$</span>\geq<span>$</span> 1
  x, y, z binary
