LeastSquares using LinearProgramming?


Hi,

Is it possible to specify a least-squares minimization through the 
LinearProgramming function? In other words, exactly the same as 
LeastSquares, with the extra constraint that all x>=0?

Presumably it comes down to specifying the input c correctly in the 
LinearProgramming function. But I can't see how to do that such that 
what is being minimized is the standard least-squares function 
||m.x-b||^2

Thanks,

Gareth
