The GLPKSolver package (available here for the Optimization.Framework is now able read .mod and .dat files into your model. Usage: var model = new Model(); model.Load(“diet.mod”, “diet.dat”); You can then go ahead and work with the model, i.e. solve or manipulate it.

The great thing about this package is that – it will also install the Optimization.Framework automatically – it will install the precompiled assemblies of GLPK – it configures the paths to the assemblies by changing your app.config file accordingly [...]
I’ve watched it several times (you probably too), but it’s still fun: http://boxcar2d.com/ Shows a demo of a genetic algorithm that builds and evaluates cars. Cool stuff. Watch the color of the parts changing, and get a deeper insight on the subpage “the algorithm”. Best, jp – orconomy.de
