[Help-glpk] patch to upgrade glpk 4.5 to 4.6

Date: Mon, 2 Aug 2004 16:48:53 +0400


Here is a patch to upgrade glpk 4.5 to 4.6 (please see the attachment).
Its MD5 check-sum must be:

757c51aaf23fb2e32feed95a0a2922f1 *glpk.diff.gz

To upgrade the package do the following:

1. Download glpk-4.5.tar.gz from GNU ftp site or some its mirror.

2. Unzip and untar glpk-4.5.tar.gz in a working subdirectory.

3. Unzip the patch attached and place it in the same working directory,
   i.e. the subdirectory 'glpk-4.5' and the file 'glpk.diff' must be in
   the same subdirectory.

4. Run the command (only once!): patch -p0 < glpk.diff
   There will be some warnings about patching glpkmex files. Never mind
   on them.

5. Rename the subdirectory 'glpk-4.5' to 'glpk-4.6'.

6. Configure and compile/install the package as usual.

What's new in glpk 4.6:

Two new statements of the GNU MathProg language were implemented:
solve and printf.

The solve statement is optional and can be used only once in the model
description. It has the following syntax:


Having been executed the solve statement makes all model variables to
be similar model parameters, i.e. below the solve statement any variable
can be referenced in the same way as a parameter. Note that variable,
constraint, and objective statements can be used only above the solve
statement while set, parameter, display, and printf statements can be
used above as well as below the solve statement.

The printf statement is intended to produce resulting reports. It has
the following syntax:

   printf format-string, expr, expr, ..., expr;

   printf { domain } : format-string, expr, expr, ..., expr;

where format-string is a symbolic literal or expression which specifies
a format control string in the same way as in the C language; expr is a
numeric, symbolic, or logical expression (if printf is used below the
solve statement, the expression may refer to model variables).

Both statements solve and printf are supported by the solver glpsol.
The output may be redirected with '-y' or '--display' option.

Below here is a brief example which illustrates how to use the solve and
printf statements.

Any comments and suggestions are welcome.
