Date: Wed Feb 13 1991 - 10:44:59 CST

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
  - 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. :-)

  Archie to the rescue (try ``rsh -l archie'', then
  once loged in, ``help'', or ``prog nqs''.
