ampls is an open source set of lightweight interfaces between AMPL and solvers, which allow:
Read in an AMPL model instance from an NL file
Write out the solution as a sol file, ready to be imported by AMPL
- A choice between:
Use of all the solver’s capabilities, using its own C API functionalities
Use of a (provided) generic interface, that encapsulates the most common functionalities of the solver interfaces, permitting hassle-free solver swap
Usage of existing AMPL licenses, when used together with the AMPL drivers
The interfaces are available for multiple languages; the core is written in C++ and it is wrapped using swig <https://www.swig.org> to other target languages.

The documentation of this API is split in a generic part, that highlights language-agnostic concepts and a set of specific ones.
