EZLP: An Interactive Computer Program for Solving Linear Programming Problems. Final Report.
Jarvis, John J.; And Others
Designed for student use in solving linear programming problems, the interactive computer program described (EZLP) permits the student to input the linear programming model in exactly the same manner in which it would be written on paper. This report includes a brief review of the development of EZLP; narrative descriptions of program features, including the driver, the editor, syntactical analysis, optimization and output, segmentation of EZLP, and machine dependence of EZLP; user instructions for entering, editing, and solving the model, as well as analyzing results, restarting and terminating the program, the HELP command, and external file-handling capabilities; and printouts of five terminal sessions providing simple and advanced examples of EZLP, as well as transportation, integer programming, and sensitivity analysis problems. A user's manual suitable for handout to students learning EZLP is appended. (CHC)
