Distribution of mathematical software via electronic mail


A large collection of public-domain mathematical software is now available via electronic mail. Messages sent to "netlib@anl-mcs" (on the Arpanet/CSNET) or to "research!netlib" (on the UNIX® network) wake up a server that distributes items from the collection. The one-line message "send index" causes a library catalog to be sent by return mail.
