A useful free program for solving linear programs is:

        path: /usr/bin/lp_solve
This program can be used to solve linear or integer linear programs.

Usage: lp_solve   -S4  <  input_file       (-S4 option gives dual variables)

Some examples input and output files are here.
Reference manual is here. (Follow tag to "lp file format")

The full package is available for download from the lp_solve  home page.

A nice help page with windows executable is available at:
(note the option -p should be replaced by -S4 to get a list of dual variables)
