Parallel Computing and Scientific Computation
DOCUMENTATION AND BIBLIOGRAPHY
Software documentation that can be volatile and changes often is mentioned early in the list. Textbooks are listed at the bottom.
V1. Linux Manual Pages
accessed by "apropos <keyword>" to get a list of commands,
and then "man <command>", or "xman" under X-Windows. The
command "info" gives a emacs-like interface and more complete
documentation for some packages. Graphical interfaces have help
applications of their own: e.g. in GNOME the default filemanager
(nautilus) acts also as a help browser for GNOME and associated
issues. Software package management and description: the "rpm"
command. Additional package documentation inside the
/usr/share/doc directory. A Google search almost always brings in
V2. HowTos and FAQs, can be found on the main software archive sites on the Internet. Some reference links:
