GRBmodel * GRBcopymodel ( GRBmodel *model )

Create a copy of an existing model.

Note that pending updates will not be applied to the model, so you should call GRBupdatemodel before copying if you would like those to be included in the copy.

Return value:

A copy of the input model. A NULL return value indicates that a problem was encountered.


model: The model to copy.

Example usage:

  GRBupdatemodel(orig); /* if you have unstaged changes in orig */
  GRBmodel *copy = GRBcopymodel(orig);
