    Controlling Gnumeric solver with python

    I'm using Gnumeric's solver for solving farm animals feeding problem. Solver and the model work well and now I would like to automate the process in Excel-like fashion.
    Does anyone know if it's possible to control the solver using the python shell or some other ingenious way?

    I'm not too familiar with C so reading the source seemed a bit too hard for me.

    I know, that it is possible to control both lpsolve and glpk straight with python. I just would like to do something in 'easy' way ...

    I am not sure what you mean by Excel-like automation. But gnumeric is easy to control using R. Check out this link:

    I suffer from web impatience. You have 5 seconds to amaze me.
