LP_SOLVE: Linear Programming Code

The non-commercial linear programming code of choice appears to be lp_solve, written in ANSI C by Michel Berkelaar, who claims to have solved problems as large as 30,000 variables and 50,000 constraints. Lp_solve can also handle (smaller) integer and mixed-integer problems. It is available by anonymous ftp from, but is not in the public domain. A user community for lp_solve exists, which has ported it to a variety of different platforms.
