Hi Everyone,

I want to know has anyone tried MIP for 0-1 knapsack problem using GLKP ?
I want to try few approximate techniques since the problem itself is

Are there any specialized programs with more sophisticated techniques that
I should try as well ? Anyone with experience of GLPK for similar problem,
please let me know.
