[2]1To build Clp see INSTALL file
3To use Clp you need the Clp and Osi libraries
5To make the unitTest and standalone executable do
7make unitTest in this directory.  This creates an executable clp.
[64]9Running clp gives you some hints.  It can do a unit test and solve netlib
10problems.  It can also solve problems and set tolerances etc.  Just do
[64]12clp -
14and then try ? or setting various stuff.
[2]16On Linux clp can do file completion and line editing. 
[64]18If you want to stress the code you can set various stuff e.g. dantzig pricing
19 and then go into netlib testing.  I do not guarantee that it will solve all
[102]20netlib if you get too creative.  For instance using presolve makes netlib
21solve faster - but pilot87 prefers a large infeasibility weight.  So
[102]23clp -presolve on -dualbound 1.0e10 -netlib
25works well.
27There are samples in ./Samples.  Use the corresponding Makefile to
[64]28create an executable - testit.
[102]30At present there are only three useful samples.
32minimum.cpp  This is the simplest possible program to read an mps file.
[64]34defaults.cpp.  This does not do much more, but it does it in much more
35complicated way by specifically setting defaults so it does give more
36useful information.  It also prints a solution in a format "similar" to that
37of MPSX.
39presolve.cpp.  This is a good driver for larger problems.
