Very good, that takes care of the problem.

I have one more question: I'm trying the example of using a 
MiniZinc/FlatZinc model in Eclipse, found on the lib(flatzinc)
reference page.  So far, I have the following code:

my_fzn_run_file(ModelFile, Options) :-
         % initialize the solver state
         fzn_init(Options, State),
         % load the model and set up the constraints
         open(ModelFile, read, S), fzn_load_stream(S, FznState),
         % Get the objective
         fzn_obj_lookup(FznState, Obj),
         % Now suppose the mzn model has variables X, a 1-d 
array, and Y, a 2d-array.
         fzn_var_lookup(FznState, X, Xe), 
fzn_var_lookup(FznState, Y, Ye),
         % How do I use Xe, Ye, and Obj in bb_min()?
         % ????
         % output solution, if found
         % increments solutions count, and succeeds if last 
one reached

It would be very useful if such an example were added to the
