Consistent handling for exportModel(), writeMIPStarts() , etc

The handling where methods like e.g. exportModel() and writeMIPStarts() is not consistent and not intuitive. In case no absolute path is specifies, exportModel() always writes the file parallel to the mod-file. Whereas writeMIPStarts(), while star...

Support for mac M1 ARM

Need CPLEX native support for ARM based osx M1/M2 - A lot of developers use mac for development and going through the emulation option is not optimal

ODBCUpdate function needed

On the recent versions of cplex we have functions like ODBCRead and ODBCPublish for data management on Data bases engines, but it is also necessary to have a function like ODBCUpdate which corresponds to the old one DBUpdate function which allows ...
