function feasopt(filename)
% Copyright 2024, Gurobi Optimization, LLC
% This example reads a MIP model from a file, adds artificial
% variables to each constraint, and then minimizes the sum of the
% artificial variables.  A solution with objective zero corresponds
% to a feasible solution to the input model.
% We can also use FeasRelax feature to do it. In this example, we
% use minrelax=1, i.e. optimizing the returned model finds a solution
% that minimizes the original objective, but only from among those
% solutions that minimize the sum of the artificial variables.

% Read model
fprintf('Reading model %s\n', filename);
model = gurobi_read(filename);

% Create penalties, only linear constraints are allowed to be relaxed
penalties.rhs = ones(rows, 1);

result = gurobi_feasrelax(model, 0, true, penalties, params);
