Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the comments.  I've been working on the menu, so you probably looked at the page while I'm fiddling with that part. 

I'm beginning to think that a glpk.js interface to Google Spreadsheets would be a useful tool. It would be a project, but with glpk encapsulated in _javascript_, and using the _javascript_ Google Doc API's, it seems like there's a clear path to a product.  I think Henri has some ideas, too, but not sure they included a spreadsheet solver.

Your online MathProg page looks most useful. You mention adding:

* A method to map Google Spreadsheet cells to MathProg parameters and variables.
SolverStudio ( lets you do this for MathProg using Excel. SolverStudio uses C#, VSTO and Python to make this happen. Please let me know how you get on adding an interface to Google Spreadsheets as I'd like to do something similar.

I've only tested this in Chrome. I'll be leaving this up for a few days on my public dropbox, and would appreciate any thoughts or feedback.
FYI, I had a minor problem with the menus showing as a column (with some items behind others) using Firefox.
