Is there a callable library version of your optimizers?

The Optimization and Modeling Library (OML) provides the optimizers in a callable library of functions that can be imbedded in an application program written in C or FORTRAN. For other Windows development tools (Visual Basic, Powerbuilder, ) OML is supplied as Dynamic Link Libraries (DLL's). The complete OML has functions for matrix generation and model management as well as optimization. The Optimization Library only includes the optimization functions. When a modeling application is delivered to the end-user, it is usually set up so that execution of the optimizer is not under the user's control, i.e., it is called from within the application. OML strongly supports this approach.

What is the connection between OML and DATAFORM?

OML is a library of functions that have the functionality of DATAFORM, but these functions can be included in a C- or FORTRAN-coded application program. The DLL version of OML provides the same set of functions for use by an application generation system such as Visual Basic or Visual FoxPro. OML works with the same MPSIII model database as DATAFORM.
