mzn_run(+ModelFile, +InstFileOrParMap, ++SolverOrOptions)

Run a MiniZinc model from a given model and instance file
File name (extension defaults to .mzn)
Instance file name (extension defaults to .dzn, then .mzn), or list of Id=Term correspondences
Name of solver mapping module, or zn_options-structure


Reads a MiniZinc model (given a model file and an instance file) and interprets it using the solver mapping defined in SolverOrOptions. At the end of solving, results are printed to the output stream, timing and progress messages are printed to the log_output stream, warnings to the warning_output stream, and error messages the error stream. This predicate always succeeds.
