If you would like to compile IPOPT with the Watson Sparse Matrix Package (WSMP), you need to obtain the WSMP library for your operating system. Information about WSMP can be found at
At this website you can obtain a ``complimentary 90-day evaluation license'' and download the library for several operating systems; make sure you read the license agreement before downloading the code. Once you obtained the code and the license, please check if the version number of the library matches the one on the WSMP website at
If a newer version is announced on that website, you can (and
probably should) request the current version by sending a message to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the operating system and
other details to describe which particular version of WSMP you need.
You can use the bugfix releases with the license you obtained from alphaWorks.
Note: Only the interface to the shared-memory version of WSMP is currently supported.
Please consult Appendix D to find out how to configure your IPOPT installation to work with WSMP.
