[Help-glpk] [ANNOUNCEMENT] Math::GLPK - the Perl wrapper module for the GNU Linear Programming Kit

Dear GLPK users,
Version 0.04 of Math::GLPK (the Perl module for the GNU Linear
Programming Kit) is available for downloading from here:
If you are already a happy user of Math::GLPK, then you may not need to
upgrade. The big improvements happened in the installation: from now the low
level GLPK wrapper library, Math::GKLP::Solve comes with full support of the
GLPK API from version 4.4 upwards. For instance, installing Math::GKLP::Solve
for GLPK v4.7 is as easy as issuing:
GLPK_VERSION=4.7 perl Makefile.PL
The test script (you use "make test", don't you?) is improved to the point
that API version mismatches can usually be caught at compile time.
The high-level object-oriented module, Math::GLPK also received numerous minor
fixes and advanced testing using Test::More.
This release has been extensively tested with GLPK v4.6 and v4.7 on Debian
GNU/Linux Sarge, but is should work on any other Unices as well.
How to install Math::GLPK:
- download all tar archives from
- first, install Math::GLPK::Solve from Math-GLPK-Solve-0.04.tar.gz. All the
necessary information can be found in the README and INSTALL files in the
distribution. You must have GLPK version 4.4 or higher installed on your
system! Currently not tested on architectures other than Debian GNU/Linux.
- install Math::MatrixSparse from Math-MatrixSparse-0.03.tar.gz. This should
work fine on all architectures supported by Perl. Note that the version of
Math::MatrixSparse (version 0.01) found on CPAN is NOT suitable for
Math::GLPK, you need version 0.03!
- install Math::GLPK from Math-GLPK-0.04.tar.gz as usual...
Testers, contributors, and especially porters are once again highly
appreciated... If you have problems or suggestions, please, contact me!
