# Submitting code to Sage

I have written a user-friendly front-end to MixedIntegerLinearProgram (aided by a suggestion of rburing). The code is listed below. I'd be happy to contribute this to the sage code base, but (not being a developer) I'm not sure how.

I have tried to follow the conventions that I've found, but I'd welcome corrections and suggestions of where to go from here.

Thanks,

Mike

r"""
Print the solution to a mixed integer linear program.
Variables are assumed real unless specified as integer,
and all variables are assumed to be nonnegative.
EXAMPLES::
var('x1 x2')
maximize(20*x1 + 10*x2, {3*x1 + x2 <= 1300, x1 + 2*x2 <= 600, x2 <= 250})
# Z = 9000.0, x1 = 400.0, x2 = 100.0
var('s h a u')
maximize(0.05*s + 0.08*h + 0.10*a + 0.13*u, {a <= 0.30*(h+a),
s <= 300, u <= s, u <= 0.20*(h+a+u), s+h+a+u <= 2000})
# Z = 174.4, s = 300.0, u = 300.0, h = 980.0, a = 420.0
var('a b c d', domain='integer')
maximize(5*a + 7*b + 2*c + 10*d,
{2*a + 4*b + 7*c + 10*d <= 15, a <= 1, b <= 1, c <= 1, d <=1 })
# Z = 17.0, a = 0, b = 1, c = 0, d = 1 (Note that integer variables <=1 are binary.)
var('x y')
minimize(x + y, {x + 2*y >= 7, 2*x + y >= 6})
# Z = 4.33333333333, x = 1.66666666667, y = 2.66666666667
var('x')
var('y', domain='integer')
minimize(x + y, {x + 2*y >= 7, 2*x + y >= 6})
# Z = 4.5, x = 1.5, y = 3
var('x y', domain='integer')
minimize(x + y, {x + 2*y >= 7, 2*x + y >= 6})
# Z = 5.0, x = 2, y = 3
var('x y', domain='integer')
maximize(x + y, {x + 2*y >= 7, 2*x + y >= 6})
# GLPK: Objective is unbounded
