Nonlinear programming problem

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi all, I am looking for a Perl module that supports non-linear programming problems similar to the Generalized Reduced Gradient (GRG2) algorithm employed by Microsoft Excel Solver.

You see, there is this nasty spreadsheet that needs to move to a Linux / Perl environment, with a web front end instead of Excel.

I'm aware that the Gnumeric tool has a similar solver in it, supporting quadratic solutions, and a mechanism to call this from a Perl script would be awesome.

Any help with getting Math::LP to support quadratics would be a great start.
Anyone sitting on a module Math::QuadraticProgramming or Math::NonLinear would be my good friend.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
