On Downloading and Using CPLEX within COIN-OR for Solving Linear/Integer Optimization Problems


  • Pérez Sainz de Rozas, Gloria
  • Garín Martín, María Araceli


The aim of this technical report is to present some detailed explanations in order to use the solver CPLEX within COIN-OR environment. In particular, we describe how to download, install and use the corresponding source code and libraries under Windows and Linux operating systems. We will use an example taken from the literature, with the experimental code and files written in C++, to describe the whole process of editing, compiling and running the executable, to solve this optimization problem by using this software. In the case of the Windows environment, a C++ compiler is also needed. We will use the Visual C++ 2010 Express Edition.
