Concorde is a computer code for the traveling salesman problem (TSP) and some related network optimization problems. The code is available for academic research use; for other uses, contact email@example.com for licensing options.
Concorde's TSP solver has been used to obtain the optimal solutions to all TSPLIB instances having up to 15,112 cities.
The Concorde ANSI C source code is distributed as a gzipped tar file and is available here
How to install on Mac OS X platform
To unpack, first gunzip the downloaded file, then use tar to unpack the archive:
$ gunzip co031219.tgz $ tar xvf co031219.tar
Unpacking the distribution create a directory, "concorde", and several subdirectories. To configure, create a new directory called concorde_build, and run the configure script from inside there:
$ mkdir concorde_build $ cd concorde_build $ ../concorde/configure --host=i*-*-freebsd*
Then, you can compile concorde by using make:
This builds the concorde library (concorde.a), header file (concorde.h), and several executable programs, including:
TSP/concorde the TSP solver LINKERN/linkern the Lin-Kernighan TSP heuristic EDGEGEN/edgegen generates edge sets FMATCH/fmatch solves fractional 2-matching problems
