# .Relax

## Definition

The variable suffix .Relax controls whether the integer variable at hand is relaxed to a continuous range or not. This suffix can take on two values:

0

This variable is not relaxed and its restriction to take on only integral values is passed on to the solver.

1

This variable is relaxed to the continuous range directly encompassing its original integral range.

## Datatype

The value of the .Relax suffix is an integer in the range $$\{ 0, 1 \}$$ and the default is 0.

## Dimension

The .Relax suffix has the same dimension and domain as that of the constraint or variable at hand.
