Read and write TSPLIB files

Reads and writes TSPLIB format files. TSPLIB files can be used by most TSP solvers. Sample instances for the TSP in TSPLIB format are available on the TSPLIB homepage (see references).

Keywords
file
Usage
write_TSPLIB(x, file, precision = 6, inf = NULL, neg_inf = NULL) read_TSPLIB(file, precision = 0)
Arguments
x
an object of class TSP, ATSP or ETSP. NAs are not allowed.
file
file name or a connection.
precision
controls the number of decimal places used to represent distances (see details). If x already is integer, this argument is ignored and x is used as is.
inf
replacement value for Inf (TSPLIB format cannot handle Inf). If inf is NULL, a large value of $max(x) + 2 range(x)$ (ignoring infinite entries) is used.
neg_inf
replacement value for -Inf. If no value is specified, a small value of $min(x) - 2 range(x)$ (ignoring infinite entries) is used.
Details

In the TSPLIB format distances are represented by integer values. Therefore, if x contains double values (which is normal in R) the values given in x are multiplied by $10^{precision}$ before coercion to integer. Note that therefore all results produced by programs using the TSPLIB file as input need to be divided by $10^{precision}$ (i.e., the decimal point has to be shifted precision placed to the left).

Currently only the following EDGE_WEIGHT_TYPEs are implemented: EXPLICIT, EUC_2D and EUC_3D.

Value

read_TSPLIB returns an object of class TSP or ATSP.

## Drilling problem from TSP
drill <- read_TSPLIB(system.file("examples/d493.tsp", package = "TSP"))
drill
tour <- solve_TSP(drill, method = "nn", two_opt = TRUE)
tour
plot(drill, tour, cex=.6, col = "red", pch= 3, main = "TSPLIB: d493")

  
## Write and read data in TSPLIB format
x <- data.frame(x=runif(5), y=runif(5))

## create TSP, ATSP and ETSP (2D)
tsp <- TSP(dist(x))
atsp <- ATSP(dist(x))
etsp <- ETSP(x[,1:2])  
  
write_TSPLIB(tsp, file="example.tsp")
#file.show("example.tsp")
r <- read_TSPLIB("example.tsp")  
r  
  
write_TSPLIB(atsp, file="example.tsp")
#file.show("example.tsp")
r <- read_TSPLIB("example.tsp")  
r  
  
write_TSPLIB(etsp, file="example.tsp")
#file.show("example.tsp")

## clean up
