I downloaded source code tarball from
I briefly tested table feature being added to MathProg. I could run
example transp_mysql.mod successfully.

Following is procedure in case anyone else wants to test the feature
on Windows XP,
using MS Visual Studio. Hopefully following information is also useful
in case someone wants to use .bat files in directory w32 (which comes
with glpk).

Please note, I am referring to glpk source code
glpk-4.26-tab_r119.tar.gz and not official glpk release tarball.
It is assumed that MySQL database installed on your machine.

I. To create glpk static library
1. Create static library project for glpk library. Add glpk header
files and source files.
2. Add HAVE_MYSQL in pre-processtor definitions.
3. Since code makes call to MySQL C API, we need to specify relevant
header file location,
Header file location = C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 4.1\include

4. Now try compiling the library. You may get following error:
error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'SOCKET'

5. To overcome above compile error add following two lines to file
glpsql02.c, *above* existing line

#include<mysql.h>       /* Existing line */

6. Now you should be able successfully compile glpk library.

II. To create glpsol executable.
1. Create console app project for glpsol. Add examples/glpsol.c as
source file (comes with glpk tarball).
Now glpsol app depends on glpk library and MySQL library (for table
feature). We need to specify
these dependancies.

2. Specify glpk header files location and glpk static library location
(created above). Specify glpk static
library name to which this app will link.

3. Similarly specify MySQL header file location and MySQL static
libraries location (comes with MySQL).

For example:
Header file location = C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 4.1\include
Static libraries location = C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 4.1\lib\opt

The MySQL libraries to be specified are, in following order:
libmysql.lib mysqlclient.lib zlib.lib

4. Try compiling the application, if successful you are ready to use glpsol exe.

To test table feature I ran glpsol on modified (to change database
related stuff)
examples/transp_mysql.mod, after using part of transp.sql.

Following is the output:

Thanks Andrew and Xypron for work on this feature.

Please refer to section I.5 above. May be those header files are
needed for Windows.
