lpsolve distributed files

lpsolve is distributed as several separate archive files. It is most unlikely that you need them all for your purpose. This text describes each archive's contents.

There are two kind of archive files:

  • ziped files (.zip)
  • gziped tar files (.tar.gz)

Ziped files are basically binaries (executables/libraries) for the Windows platform.

gziped tar files can be divided into two categories:

  • binaries (executables, libraries) for the Linux platform.
  • source files that are operating system independent.
