This paper describes libcgrpp, a GNU-style dynamic shared Python/C library of the continuous greedy randomized adaptive search procedure (C-GRASP) for bound constrained global optimization. C-GRASP is an extension of the GRASP metaheuristic (Feo and Resende, 1989). After a brief introduction to C-GRASP, we show how to download, install, configure, and use the library through an illustrative example.
