See also parlib.
It's like netlib.  To start, send the mail daemon
	send index
in with the body or Subject field of the message.

Parlib has been around about six years now. While I was moderator, I
could keep up with it. Over the past couple years, I was too busy. I'm
back in business now. We have moved parlib to a new location that is
web accessible:

I also have older articles off-line from Steve Stephenson, from 1990+
but consider them too old to be relevant.
 comp.parallel specifically is at

At this time (June 1995), the index (minus the help) is:

bibliographies - Bibliographies available through parlib or ftp.

mobil                   donation of codes illustrating the same problem
                        solved on various architectures.
newsgroup               Information regarding the comp.parallel newsgroup
other-servers           Other locations specializing is serving special groups.

The net does not assure the value or quality of the information posted here.
	caveat receptor
The quality is a function of how YOU (and others) participate.  If you sit
back passively, you will be disappointed.  The group is basically academic
in nature.  Expect academic debate (or the more juvenille "flame war")
on some topics.  You get what you pay for here.  Don't expect technical
advice which you would have thought to pay thousands of dollars (an analysis)
here for free.  It doesn't happen.

I have a huge amount (450M) of parallel computing files and lots of
FAQs, and stuff culled from news articles.
