A useful free program for solving linear programs is:

lp_solve path: /usr/bin/lp_solve

This program can be used to solve linear or integer linear
programs.

Usage: lp_solve -S4
< input_file (-S4
option gives dual variables)

Some examples input and output files are here.

Reference manual is here.
(Follow tag to "lp file format")

The full package is available for download from the
lp_solve home
page.

A nice help page with very old
windows executable is available at:

http://www.statslab.cam.ac.uk/~rrw1/opt/lp_solve/

(note the option -p should be replaced by -S4 to get a list of dual
variables)
