# 6.1 The Basics Tutorial¶

The simplest program using the MOSEK Matlab interface can be described shortly:

1. Load a problem into a problem structure (a task).
2. Optimize the problem.
3. Fetch the result.

%  Purpose :   To demonstrate how solve a problem
%              read from file.

function simple(inputfile, solfile)

cmd      = sprintf('read(%s)', inputfile)
% Read the problem from file
[rcode, res] = mosekopt(cmd)

% Perform the optimization.
[r,res] = mosekopt('minimize', res.prob);

% Show the optimal x solution.
res.sol.bas.xx
