Linear programming is normally thought of as an application to be run on large computers, and for many problems that is the case. However, there are many problems of a suitable size to run on microcomputers, and a variety of packages have appeared on the market in the last year or two claiming to solve linear programming problems on popular microcomputers. The paper considers the features to look for in a package and the type of problem to consider for solution on microcomputers.
