Name        : cddlib
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 094f
Release     : 14.fc17
URL         : http://www.ifor.math.ethz.ch/~fukuda/cdd_home/
Summary     : A library for generating all vertices in convex polyhedrons
Description :
The C-library cddlib is a C implementation of the Double Description
Method of Motzkin et al. for generating all vertices (i.e. extreme points)
and extreme rays of a general convex polyhedron in R^d given by a system
of linear inequalities:

   P = { x=(x1, ..., xd)^T :  b - A  x  >= 0 }

where A is a given m x d real matrix, b is a given m-vector
and 0 is the m-vector of all zeros.

The program can be used for the reverse operation (i.e. convex hull
computation). This means that one can move back and forth between
an inequality representation and a generator (i.e. vertex and ray)
representation of a polyhedron with cdd. Also, cdd can solve a linear
programming problem, i.e. a problem of maximizing and minimizing
a linear function over P.

Update Information:

This update adds the const qualifier to some parameters to public functions, in order to resolve problems with C++ consumers.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update cddlib' at the command line.
For more information, refer to "Managing Software with yum",
available at http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.
