The seventh MATLAB Programming Contest, Trucking, will run from April 2-9, 2003.
Your challenge is to pick up as much freight from as many cities as possible with a limited amount of fuel. Filling stations are also scattered around the map for filling, but you must take all the fuel at a station. You must make it back to your starting city with your freight before you run out of fuel. Your score is how much freight you collect with penalties for the gas you pick up and the execution time.

This submission includes all the files needed to develop and score an entry.
