Thanks a lot Xypron!
actually I hacked a bit the code in glptsp.c and I use it as a c function to
create a csv file from a TSPLIB file and then I called your .mod file to
solve TSPs from the same c program (and produce also a graphical output).
However, the solutions I get from your model are not feasible tours ...
well, maybe I did something wrong, but are you sure that your model works to
enforce the creation of feasible tours? i didn't have time to go into the
details of your model actually.
I also used the model proposed in:
and it seems to work (well, I tested it for small instances, less tan 100
