       cbc - Cbc mixed integer programming solver


       cbc [ options ] filename


       This manual page documents briefly the cbc command.

       cbc  --  Cbc  (Coin-or  branch and cut) is an open-source mixed integer programming solver
       written in C++.


       When no options are given cbc enters the interactive command  line  mode.   Otherwise  the
       program  enters a batch mode, for which a summary of options is included below.  Note that
       the order of options in the command line of the cbc executable matter The command line  of
       the  cbc executable is parsed as if it were in the interactive mode. The take-away is that
       if your using the command line, and things aren't working as you think  they  should,  try
       ordering the commands in the sequence you'd use if you were interactive mode.

       For a complete description, see /usr/share/doc/coinor-libcbc-doc.

       -      Read input from stdin instead of filename

       -csv   The  option "-csv <filename>" causes cbc to print one line of key output statics in
              commma separated format in a file named <filename>.  This  option  isn't  currently
              included in the list of commands given by the "?" command in interactive mode.

       -threads <num_threads>
              Run cbc in parallel using <num_threads> many CPUs


       In interactive mode one command per line is expected (no leading -).

       ?      lists all available commands

              gives list of possibilities, if only one + explanation

              adds explanation, if only one fuller help

              without value (where expected) gives current value

       <command> <value>
               sets value
