Contract - Semi-continuous variables, predefined constraint functions, combine BCL with Xpress Optimizer

Description
A small MIP-problem example demonstrating how to define semi-continuous variables, use predefined constraint functions and retrieve the problem status.

Two modified versions (documented in the 'BCL Reference Manual') show how to (1) combine BCL problem input with problem solving in Xpress Optimizer and (2) use an Xpress Optimizer solution callback with a BCL model.

Further explanation of this example: 'BCL Reference Manual', Appendix B Using BCL with the Optimizer library
