One of the main difficulties which arises when using a general purpose linear programming (LP) package is the need to prepare a special code to transform initially structured model data into a format appropriate for subsequent use by an LP solution system (for example, at IIASA we require an MPS-type input file for use with the MINOS LP system). These codes are usually in general purpose programming languages, are often rather complex, and are generally quite difficult to implement. There is a lack of advanced software capable of simplifying the preparation of information in the form required by the LP package, and this is a problem especially for those who use linear models in the solution of a wide variety of applied problems. In such cases it is highly desirable to have a flexible and convenient interface between user and LP software.

Here we describe a tool which saves time for the analyst by making it possible to organize investigations with linear models in an interactive manner.
