23      This applies the primal algorithm. If <i class="parameter"><tt>mode</tt></i> is
24      set to the default of 0, then the method uses the status variables to
25      determine basis and solution. If <i class="parameter"><tt>mode</tt></i> is 1 then
26      the method does a values pass so variables not in basis are given their
27      current values and one pass of variables is done to clean up the basis
28      with an equal or better objective value.

46      This method attemps to improve on an all slack basis.
47      For dual this will move variables to the dual feasible bound
48      if the gap between bounds is less than <i class="parameter"><tt>gap</tt></i>.  Setting
49      <i class="parameter"><tt>mode</tt></i> to 0 guesses which algorithm is better, while
50      a value of 1 or 2 will result in more work being done.  The return code is
51      0 if the basis was not slacks in first case, it is negative if dual is
52      preferred or positive if primal.  ±1 means an all slack basis seemed
53      best, while ±2 means some work was done.

58      and off (<i class="parameter"><tt>mode</tt></i> set to 0).  It should be considered
59      a work in progress, although on some problems it gives very good results.

63      </td><td align="left" valign="top">
64      These are "get" and "set" methods for the basis matrix
65      factorization frequency.  The default is to refactor every 200 iterations,
66      but it may make more sense to use something such as 100 + the number of
67      rows divided by 50.

71      </td><td align="left" valign="top">
72      These are "get" and "set" methods for the
73      "dual bound".  The CLP dual algorithm declares all problems
74      to be dual feasible by putting non-basic variables to correct bounds for
75      the reduced cost.  If the gap between the bounds is too big then it
76      pretends the gap is only the value specified by this set method.
77      In essence, this gives a composite dual rather than a pure
78      Phase I- Phase II method.

88      After a solve, there may be infeasibilities.  These methods serve to
89      check for said infeasibilities.  One could check the solution explicitly
