We have implemented a numerical model of a SLED-type pulse compressor that can generate a single or a double pulse. Together with the CERN CLICopti library, an RF structure parameter estimator, we created the toolbox which enables thorough optimizations of linacs in terms of RF efficiency, beam stability, and cost simultaneously, via a simple and concise Octave script. This toolbox was created for the optimization of X-band-based linacs, however it can also be used at lower frequencies, e.g. in the S- and in the C- bands of frequencies.
