Google releases open-source Simplex Solver

good news for O.R practitioners. I wish COIN-OR would make their license as friendly as google's simplex solver. We'll have to look into the code to see if it's an efficient and effective implementation (e.g., dual simplex with LU factorization) for large LPs.


Here's the license details cut-and-pasted from the source.
