Hi Pietro,

Thank you for interest in glpk lab.

In principle, yes. Glpk lab allows (we hope) windows users, especially
beginners and undergraduate students, to avoid many technical problems
on compiling and installing the glpk package and other related software
like glpk-java. In the future we plan to include in glpk lab other
windows software related to glpk.

Gusek is a separate package. I think that Luiz could answer this

We decided not to develop the glpk lab editor as a general-purpose
ide, i.e. it is intended mainly for editing and running models written
in mathprog. However, you can use it in any way you want, because it
is a slightly modified version of scite, a general-purpose text editor.
