1. An Overview

The current stable release version of LS-OPT is LS-OPT Version 5.2.1. The latest Users Manual is a PDF document. Manuals are included with each distribution archive; so there is no need to download the manual separately.

A good resource for getting started with LS-OPT is found on the DynaMore website. DynaMore is a distributor of LSTC Software Products. There is also an LS-OPT Google Group for LS-OPT, which is monitored by LS-OPT developers.

2. Installation under Linux

First Download the gzipped tar archive for your Hardware/OS.

The archive contains files in one directory named LSOPT_EXE. You can verify this using the 'tar' command. For example,

     tar tvzf lsopt_50_81995_x64_sles11.tar.gz

produces this output for Versions 5.x:

Now create a directory where you would like to install LS-OPT. Copy the downloaded archive into that directory. Then 'cd' into that directory, and unpack the archive. A subdirectory LSOPT_EXEwill be created beneath the installation directory where all executables are placed. For example,

     mkdir $HOME/LSOPT50
     cp lsopt_50_81995_x64_sles11.tar.gz $HOME/LSOPT50
     cd $HOME/LSOPT50
     tar xvzf lsopt_50_81995_x64_sles11.tar.gz

It is probably best to add the LSOPT_EXE directory to your path, though this is not necessary. In this case, you would add $HOME/LSOPT50/LSOPT_EXE to your path. LS-OPT can be run strictly from the command line, directly in a batch mode. The preferred method is to use the LS-OPTui graphical user interface to set up problems, edit them, and run LS-OPT from within LS-OPTui. There are excellent data visualization tools which are part of the LS-OPTui.

     lsopt command_file     (runs lsopt in batch mode)
     lsoptui                (starts the graphical user interface tool)

3. Installation under Microsoft Windows

Download the zipped archive for your machine.

There is no installation program required for LS-OPT. Simply create a folder, and unzip the contents of the downloaded archive into that folder. To start LS-OPT, locate the LSOPTui program and double-click it. You may wish to create a short-cut on your desktop rather than remember where the LSOPT folder is located.
