In the course we make use of the packages maple, lp_solve, cplex and
lrs. All are installed on lab
machines in Trottier: labi-j.cs.mcgill.ca, 1<=i<=9 and 1<=j<=30 (Try i=4 or 6 first).
You can connect remotely by ssh: eg: ssh lab6-4.cs.mcgill.ca
A full list of machine names in labs is here: http://www.cs.mcgill.ca/socsinfo/labs/
If you do not find the software, try typing: %source /usr/socs/Cshrc
You will need to set the path for some of the software.
You will need to set the licence variable to gain access:
setenv CPLEXLICDIR /usr/local/pkgs/cplexnfs/licdir
Instructions for using cplex, a few examples and two small manuals can be found here.
maple path: /usr/local/bin/maple
A maple session that shows how to solve systems of equations is here.
The full package is available for download from the lp_solve home page.
A nice help page with DOS executable is available at:
