---------------------------------------

Hi Alexander,

your problem looks more like a least-squares problem with bounds to me.

The constraints defined for the simplex solver are quite tight, i.e. all constraint rows have
a right hand side of = 0.
I would rather relax this criteria like this:

So you try to find a solution for | s * v | <= 1e-6

With this (and testing with the latest trunk version) I get a solution that is consistent
with all constraints: 0.17108682266
but it takes some time, as the problem is quite large, and the implemented simplex algorithm
is not using the faster revised method yet.

I would suggest that you describe your problem in more detail and ask on the user mailinglist
as there maybe a better way to solve your problem and there are several experts for different

> We have vector v and matrix s (from file S.txt)
> v - vector ( size: 1*649 )
> s - matrix ( size: 554*649 )
> We want solve linear problem:
>          *     max (v[31])
>          *     Bounds:
>          *          s*v = 0
>          *          -1 <= v[i] <= 1 for i=0,..., 648
> We changed  MaxIter parameter (from 100 to 1e+6). And we changed epsilon ( set default
value and 1e-3).  But solver always throws TooManyIterationsException (and work very slow).
