The tar file is not a program, it is an archive that contains a set of
files. You can extract files from a tar file with a suitable utility
like tar under Linux or WinZip under Windows. For more details see
Once you have unarchived glpk-4.47.tar into a directory, you may then
compile and install glpk by running the configure script and make
utility (under Linux) or by running one of batch scripts in subdirectory
w32 or w64 (under Windows). For more information on compiling glpk on
various platforms see http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/GLPK .
