This ZIP-archive contains the old benchmark data sets for SALBP (and UALBP as well) which have been used for testing and comparing solution procedures in almost all relevant studies since the early nineties. Concerning SALBP-1 the well-known test sets of Talbot et al. (1986) and Hoffmann (1990) are contained, too. For details please examine the description documents given below and the readme-files in the archive.
