At the beginning of last week, I had asked a question asking peopel
if they knew if there was a public domain version of NQS out in the
public domain, for SPARC-based systems.
I got a number of responses:
- it is available from pemrac.space.swri.edu.
- it is available - commerically - from Sterling Software.
- Archie (see note below) can be used to do searches. VERY USEFUL!!!
I would like to thank all who responded,

Some site had 1.0 available for anonyous FTP. I can't remember where
it was but I can ask one of the guys I work with about it.

Sterling does sell NQS for the SparcStation (contact Don Zarlengo at
Sterling Software (415-964-9900) for more information).

It's my understanding that the PD version of NQS is available from the COSMIC
office, which is where a lot of software developed by the feds that becomes
public, is distributed from.
Seems that I recall that the COSMIC office is at the University of Georgia
at Atlanta, but I'm not sure about that ...
BTW there is an easier way to get NQS. Pay $5 million for a Cray. :-)
