# readmps

reads a file in MPS format

### Calling Sequence

mps= readmps (file-name,bounds [,maxsizes]);

### Arguments

- file-name
a string, the name of the mps file

- bounds
2-vector

`[lowbound,upbound]`

, default lower and upper bounds- maxsizes
3-vector

`[maxm,maxn,maxnza]`

Maximum number of contraints and variables, maximum number of nonzeros entries in the LP constraint matrix. If omitted readmps reads the file once just to compute these numbers.- mps
tlist with following fields

- irobj
integer (index of the objective row).

- namec
character string (Name of the objective).

- nameb
character string (Name of the right hand side).

- namran
character string (Name of the ranges section).

- nambnd
character string (Name of the bounds section).

- name
character string (Name of the LP problem).

- rownames
character string column vector (Name of the rows).

- colnames
character string row vector (Name of the columns).

- rowstat
integer vector, row types:

- 1

- -k
free variable

### Description

Reads a file containing description of an LP problem
given in MPS format and returns a `tlist`

which describes the problem. It is an
interface with the program `rdmps1.f`

of hopdm (J. Gondzio).
For a description of the variables, see the file rdmps1.f.

MPS format is a standard ASCII medium for LP codes. MPS format is described in more detail in Murtagh's book:

Murtagh B. (1981). Advanced Linear Programming, McGrew-Hill, New York, 1981.

### Examples

//Let the LP problem: //objective: // min XONE + 4 YTWO + 9 ZTHREE //constraints: // LIM1: XONE + YTWO < = 5 // LIM2: XONE + ZTHREE > = 10 // MYEQN: - YTWO + ZTHREE = 7 //Bounds // 0 < = XONE < = 4 // -1 < = YTWO < = 1 //Generate MPS file txt=['NAME TESTPROB' 'ROWS' ' N COST' ' L LIM1' ' G LIM2' ' E MYEQN' 'COLUMNS' ' XONE COST 1 LIM1 1' ' XONE LIM2 1' ' YTWO COST 4 LIM1 1' ' YTWO MYEQN -1' ' ZTHREE COST 9 LIM2 1' ' ZTHREE MYEQN 1' 'RHS' ' RHS1 LIM1 5 LIM2 10' ' RHS1 MYEQN 7' 'BOUNDS' ' UP BND1 XONE 4' ' LO BND1 YTWO -1' ' UP BND1 YTWO 1' 'ENDATA']; mputl(txt,TMPDIR+'/test.mps') //Read the MPS file P=readmps(TMPDIR+'/test.mps',[0 10^30]) disp(P)
