csv2gdx2.gms : CSV2GDX Example 2 - Reading CSV Files with CSV2GDX

**Description**

This problem finds a least cost shipping schedule that meets requirements at markets and supplies at factories. CSV2GDX is used to read all data from external CSV files with comma separated fields. Note: In this example, the CSV data can also be read by using a simple table statement without doing further preprocessing.

Princeton University Press, Princeton, New Jersey, 1963. This formulation is described in detail in: Rosenthal, R E, Chapter 2: A GAMS Tutorial. In GAMS: A User's Guide.
