# LSPModule Class¶

class

A module is a collection of global variables.

As LSP is a dynamically typed language, global variable can contain any value (including functions and other modules). Each LSP file is a module.

Global variables can be modified and accessed by their name specified as a string. Most of the functions below exist in multiple versions: values of the global variables can be manipulated through their native type (like int, float, std::string, LSPMap, LSPFunction…) or manipulated through LSPValue which is a container that can hold any type of value. Using the native type is more convenient and results in less overhead most of the time. LSPValue should only be used when you don’t know the type of the manipulated value.

## Functions¶

void localsolver::modeler::LSPModule::parseArguments(const std::vector<std::string> &args)

Parses the list of arguments and imports them in the module.

Each argument must be of the form argName=argValue.

Parameters: args - List of arguments.

void localsolver::modeler::LSPModule::parseArguments(int argc, const char *const *argv)

Parses the list of arguments and imports them in the module.

Each argument must be of the form argName=argValue.

Parameters: argc - Number of arguments. argv - Pointer to the first argument in the list.

void localsolver::modeler::LSPModule::run()

Entry point to the execution of a module.

Such execution is defined by the following steps:

• The input function is executed if it exists in the module.
• The model function is executed. It must be declared in the module.
• The localsolver.LSModel is then closed.
• The param function is executed if it exists in the module.
• The function localsolver.LocalSolver#solve is called on the corresponding solver instance. If the display function is defined, it will be called during the resolution process.
• The output function is executed if it exists in the module.

void localsolver::modeler::LSPModule::run(const std::vector<std::string> &arguments)

Entry point to the execution of a module.

This is a shortcut to parsing arguments with LSPModule#parseArguments before calling LSPModule#run.

See: LSPModule.parseArguments LSPModule.run arguments - List of arguments
