TSP_BRUTE
Brute Force Solution of Traveling Salesman Problem


TSP_BRUTE is a MATLAB program which solves small versions of the traveling salesman problem, using brute force.

The user must prepare a file beforehand, containing the city-to-city distances. The program will request the name of this file, and then read it in. An example of such a file is:

        0  3  4  2  7
        3  0  4  6  3
        4  4  0  5  8
        2  6  5  0  6
        7  3  8  6  0
