The executable has some command-completion functionality as well as some online help. Below is a table with some examples which summarize these capabilities.
Table 5.1. Command examples for the clp executable
|?||Gives a list of all commands|
|p?||Gives a list of all commands which begin with <p>.|
|p??||Gives a list of all commands which begin with <p>., with a short explanation for each.|
|primals??||If is this is enough to uniquely determine a command (in this example, primalS, for primal simplex), a long explanation is given.|
In addition, matching a name without a ? will either execute the command or give the value of the corresponding parameter as follows: primalw will give the current value of the primalWeight parameter while primalw 1.0e7 will change it to 1.0e7.
