    1 = Welcome to Trac 0.9.5 =
     1= Welcome to the Cbc home page =
    3 Trac is a '''minimalistic''' approach to '''web-based''' management of
    4 '''software projects'''. Its goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress.
     3''Note that these project webpages are based on Wiki, i.e., webusers can modify the content, for example, in order to correct typos, add information, or --- something we would really be happy about --- to share their experience and tips with other users.  You are welcome to contribute to these Clp project webpages.''
    6 All aspects of Trac have been designed with the single goal to
    7 '''help developers write great software''' while '''staying out of the way'''
    8 and imposing as little as possible on a team's established process and
    9 culture.
     5== Introduction ==
    11 As all Wiki pages, this page is editable, this means that you can
    12 modify the contents of this page simply by using your
    13 web-browser. Simply click on the "Edit this page" link at the bottom
    14 of the page. WikiFormatting will give you a detailed description of
    15 available Wiki formatting commands.
     7Cbc ('''C'''oin-or '''b'''ranch and '''c'''ut) is an open-source mixed integer programming solver written in C++. It is primarily meant to be used as a callable library, but a basic, stand-alone executable version is also available.  Cbc is a branch and cut code designed to work with any [ Osi] capable solver and in particular [ Clp].
    17 "[wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] ''yourenvdir'' initenv" created
    18 a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample
    19 data. This newly created environment also contains
    20 [wiki:TracGuide documentation] to help you get started with your project.
    22 You can use [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] to configure
    23 [ Trac] to better fit your project, especially in
    24 regard to ''components'', ''versions'' and ''milestones''.
     12== Background/Download ==
    27 TracGuide is a good place to start.
     15Cbc is written in C++ and is released as open source code under the [ Common Public License (CPL)].  It is available from the [ COIN-OR initiative].  The code has been written by primarily by John J. Forrest, who is the COIN project leader for Ipopt.
    29 Enjoy! [[BR]]

     17You can obtain the Cbc source code either via subversion or in form of nightly generated tarballs.  The recommended method is to use subversion because it makes it easier to obtain updates. The following commands may be used to obtain and build Cbc from the source code using subversion:
     18 1. svn co `` coin-Cbc
     19 1. cd coin-Cbc
     20 1. ./configure -C
     21 1. make
     22 1. make test
     23 1. make install
    32 == Starting Points ==
     25Step 1 issues the subversion command to obtain the source code.  Alternatively one can obtain the source code from the [ tarball directory], and down loading a file of the form Cbc_YYYYMMMDD.tgz.
