NAME ^

Math::LP::Variable - variables used in linear programs

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Math::LP::Variable;

    # make a variable named x1
    my $x1 = new Math::LP::Variable(name => 'x1');

    # make an integer variable named x2
    my $x2 = new Math::LP::Variable(name => 'x2', is_int => 1);

    # make a variable named x3 initialized to 3.1415
    my $x3 = new Math::LP::Variable(name => 'x3', value => '3.1415');

DESCRIPTION ^

DATA FIELDS

name

a string with the name of the variable (required)

is_int

a flag indicating whether the variable can only have integer values (optional, defaults to false)

value

a number representing the value of the variable (optional)

upper_bound

an upper bound to the value, defaults to 1E24

lower_bound

a lower bound to the value, defaults to 0

col_index

an integer number holding the index of the variable in the matrix of the LP the variable is used in (optional)

METHODS

Math::LP::Variable inherits all methods from Math::SimpleVariable, without adding any new methods.

SEE ALSO ^
