EMPS
Expand a compressed MPS file.


EMPS is a C++ program which can expand a compressed MPS file into standard form, by David Gay.

MPS files are a standard format for describing linear programming problems. They tend to be large and verbose, and so it is useful to compress them when they are not in use.

Usage:

emps file.mpsc file.mps
where

Languages:

EMPS is available in a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version.

Related Data and Programs:

MPSC, a dataset directory which contains examples of compressed MPS files.

MPS, a dataset directory which contains examples of uncompressed MPS files.
