Subject: temperature values with simulated annealing

Hello everyone,
I have to solve an optimization problem with simulated annealing algorithm. At first i was delighted when i found about the global optimization toolbox which supported the simulated annealing in MATLAB, however i couldn't get the code of it and i saw it was for commercial use not student.
(Does anyone knows of a free available implementation for students)
So, i have to code the algorithm on my own. I found description of it but i can't really figure the values i should put in the values of the initial temperature, the number of iterations and the function varying the temperature. Are these values dependent of my problem or there are generic values to use?
I know it is not really related to MATLAB but any help is highly appreciated.
Thanks

If you have a student version of MATLAB then the Global Optimization
Toolbox is available for purchase at a very reduced price. It could save
you many days of coding.
