CUTEr is a versatile testing environment for optimization and linear
algebra solvers. The package contains a collection of test problems,
along with Fortran 77, Fortran 90/95 and Matlab tools intended
to help developers design, compare and improve new and existing solvers.
The test problems provided are written in so-called Standard Input Format
A decoder to convert from this format into well-defined
Fortran 77 and data files is available as a
Once translated, these files may be manipulated to provide tools
suitable for testing optimization packages. Ready-to-use
interfaces to existing packages, such as
and more, are provided. See the interfaces
section for a complete list.
CUTEr is available on a variety of
UNIX platforms, including Linux
and is designed to be accessible and easily manageable on heterogeneous
New: An updated version of CUTEr
is now available featuring simplified tools and a new Matlab interface
with dynamic allocation. This version of CUTEr supersedes the
current version. Users are advised to head to the
migrate to the new tools.
New: CUTEr and SifDec are now
available on MAC OS-X platforms.
Except for DOS and VAX/VMS, CUTEr is 100% backward-compatible with
earlier versions of
