Hello all

For those of us who don't use Java:

 "Classpath is a parameter -- set either on the
  command-line, or through an environment variable --
  that tells the Java Virtual Machine or the compiler
  where to look for user-defined classes and packages."

  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classpath_%28Java%29

What would be the equivalent in C/C++, I wonder?
An exception that allows for both static and dynamic
linking??

My view is that if some kind of 'classpath' exception
is made to GLPK, then it should be language-agnostic --
that is, not specifically written for Java, Plankalk├╝l,
or any other supported or yet to be supported language
binding.

cheers, Robbie
