Hi,

I have some happy news.  After writing up a 47-lines bash script that would
search every IRIX machine at SGI in parallel I managed to find most of the
Indy documentation in electronic form.  I tried about 6000 machines before I
found anything, and it took me almost 9 hours of hard work.  The biggest
problem I had was that I ran into the open file limit in Linux so I could only
search 250 machines at the same time.  Why is it so?

This is the contents of the directory:

-r--r--r--    1 guest    guest     427532 Sep 23  1998 dmux1.showcase
dr--r--r--    2 guest    guest       4096 Sep 23  1998 gio64
-r--r--r--    1 guest    guest     413144 Sep 23  1998 hpc3.showcase
-r--r--r--    1 guest    guest     260096 Sep 23  1998 ioc.spec.frame
-r--r--r--    1 guest    guest     411688 Sep 23  1998 mc.showcase
-r--r--r--    1 guest    guest     217662 Sep 23  1998 pbus.doc
-r--r--r--    1 guest    guest     197632 Sep 23  1998 rb2.spec.frame
-r--r--r--    1 guest    guest     852059 Sep 23  1998 rex3.spec.ps
-r--r--r--    1 guest    guest     169984 Sep 23  1998 ro1.spec.frame
-r--r--r--    1 guest    guest     552960 Sep 23  1998 vc2.spec.frame
dr--r--r--    2 guest    guest       4096 Sep 23  1998 vino
-r--r--r--    1 guest    guest     414720 Sep 23  1998 xmap9.spec.frame
-r--r--r--    1 guest    guest     176437 Sep 23  1998 xmap9.spec.ps

I don't know if I will be allowed to distribute this, but it's at least a huge
step from the paper documentation that we have now.  I'll convert it to
postscript so that we can read it..

Cheers,
Ulf
