You probably know this already but just in case:
- http://www.gnu.org/software/glpk/glpk.html GNU Linear
Programming Kit (GLPK) "supports the GNU MathProg
language, which is a subset of the AMPL language."
(Includes a translator for GNU MathProg and
PuLP "is an LP modeler written in Python.
PuLP can generate .LP and .MPS files and call GLPK, COIN
CLP/SBB, CPLEX or XPRESS to solve linear problems."
