    77== Is CLP reliable? ==
    8 (DN 09/07/04) CLP has been tested on many problems of up to 1.5 million constraints and has shown itself as reliable as OSL. It is also being tested in the context of SBB ("Simple Branch and Bound", which is used to solve integer programs), but more testing is needed before it can get to version 1.0.
     8(DN 09/07/04) CLP has been tested on many problems of up to 1.5 million constraints and has shown itself as reliable as OSL. It is also being tested in the context of CBC ([http://projects.coin-or.org/Cbc "COIN-OR Branch and Cut"], which is used to solve integer programs), but more testing is needed before it can get to version 1.0.

    18 (DN 08/27/04) CLP uses sparse matrix techniques designed for very large problems. The design criteria were for it not to be too slow. Some speed has been sacrificed to make the code less opaque OSL (not difficult!).

    3131== When will CLP have a good native ordering? ==
    32 (DN 09/16/04) The best outcome would be to have an existing ordering code available as part of the COIN distribution under the CPL. However, if this is not possible, the native ordering will be made respectable.
