Supported Languages and Files
You can upload binary (non-text) files to your project, such as images and PDFs.
Other types of binary files can live in your project just as any other file. If you are using a PIFOP Optimization Server to run your model, you should be able to programmatically reference, load, read and modify them as you wish.
Use one of the options below to upload files to your project:
- Option 1: In the top menu, click on the File > Upload option and select one or more files to upload. The file(s) will be uploaded in the root of your project.
- Option 2: Right click on any file or folder on the file explorer to the left, click on Upload and select one or more files to upload. The file(s) will be uploaded in the folder you have right-clicked on.
PIFOP only recognizes UTF8-encoded text files (e.g. models and scripts).
If you ever upload a file that you can edit in with another text editor but not on PIFOP, it is probably because it is using a different encoding. To workaround that issue, either copy and paste the file contents into a blank file in PIFOP or save the file with UTF8 encoding using your text editor — the way to do that varies across editors, but there is usually an "Encoding" option somewhere in the top menus — and then reupload it.
