connect03.gms : Simple Connect Example with CSV Files

Description

This problem finds a least cost shipping schedule that meets
requirements at markets and supplies at factories.

GAMS Connect is used to read and write CSV files.
Note: In this example, the CSV data can also be read by using a simple
table statement without doing further preprocessing.
