Hi Axel,

there is now a snapshot of the PPL 0.6 development branch in

In the C interface you will find the function ppl_Polyhedron_maximize()
that does what you need (and more).  Beware: this new code is almost
untested.  Please let us know how it goes.
Cheers

Roberto

P.S.   Any progress in debugging the ConSys iteration problem?
