Name        : cddlib
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 094g
Release     : 7.fc18
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 symbol aliases to the GMP build so that both libraries can be linked into a single application.  (Polymake needs this.)  This build should be identical to the previous build for existing applications.

* Tue Nov 27 2012 Jerry James <loganjerry at gmail.com> - 094g-7
- Add function aliases in the GMP build for polymake
- License fixing code now handles names with spaces

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update cddlib' at the command line.
