The University of Pisa Computer Science Department
have also reimplemented the original RELAX-IV
Fortran code, but into C++ instead.  They offer
their version with warning that the algorithm may
fail to converge.  The full text is:

 "RelaxIV is our C++ re-implementation of the
  Relaxation algorithm by D. Bertsekas, based on
  his original Fortran code. The code seems to
  work fairly well as a general-purpose MCF
  solver, and it is apparently capable of dealing
  with problems with nonintegral costs and/or
  capacities, although you have to be warned that
  Relaxation algorithms may in theory fail to
  converge with nonintegral data."

This information may be of interest to those using
the new 'glp_mincost_relax4' call.
