Any good books or websites that teach linear programming / linear optimization with R? Thanks.

Edit (Jan 6, 2013): The following R code is an example by using the "lpSolve" package.

# Maximize 
#   x1 + 9 x2 +   x3 
# Subject to: 
#   x1 + 2 x2 + 3 x3 <= 9
# 3 x1 + 2 x2 + 2 x3 <= 15
f.obj <- c(1, 9, 3)
f.con <- matrix(c(1, 2, 3, 3, 2, 2), nrow = 2, byrow = TRUE)
f.dir <- c("<=", "<=")
f.rhs <- c(9, 15)

lp("max", f.obj, f.con, f.dir, f.rhs)
lp("max", f.obj, f.con, f.dir, f.rhs)$solution

In case the link goes stale, it would be nice to include a bit more information with your answer. –  robjohn Oct 22 '12 at 16:43
Thanks @robjohn. I added an example in the original post. –  dwstu Jan 6 '13 at 4:30
@DanWu: my comment was intended for Vivian Wang regarding the link in the answer. The example code does not significantly enhance your reference request. Now that the question is closed here, you might as well simply ask it on Stack Overflow yourself (without the code, it should be pretty easy to copy). –  robjohn Jan 6 '13 at 5:39
