CS Bibliographies

Das Fachinformationszentrum Karlsruhe, Abt. Mathematik u. Informatik in Berlin, http://www.zblmath.fiz-karlsruhe.de/, bietet seit neulich eine Preview der Datenbank CompactMATH ueber WWW an.
Good news: Henry Baker maintains an ftp directory at netcom that holds postscript copies of many of his papers. Bad news: netcom is chronically hard to contact.
Papers covering Amoeba, Choices, Chorus, Clouds, the Hurd, Guide, Mach, Mars, NonStop, and Plan 9 are also available via anonymous ftp from ftp.funet.fi:/pub/doc/OS.
As part of an awareness project on high performance computing, the ``London and South East Centre for High Performance Computing'' (SEL-HPC) has created a number of article archives. Of particular interest to comp.compilers readers are: monochrome users and Kitsch colour page.

(04.04.95) Currently, there are 3634 articles archived. Basic access is by thematic group, but there are additional indices by author, or by conference/journal. For many papers, links to postscript files are given. This could develop to a major literature source.

For an example page, here is the garbage collection section of the "compilers and interpreters" archive.

The Collection of Computer Science Bibliographies has moved to another server. At the same time a search interface based on glimpse has been added.

The new URL for the Collection of Computer Science Bibliographies is:


The old URL will continue to work by means of redirection, which should be transparent to clients.

What is the Computer Science Bibliography Collection?

The Computer Science Bibliography Collection is a collection of close to 600 bibliographies in the field of computer science, comprising about 330,000 references. The bibliographies mostly contain references to journal articles, conference papers and technical reports.

The bibliographies are not just linked but are present as a local copy which is updated from the original source every weekend. The local availablity of the bibliographic data allows for searches in the complete collection.

Mirror Sites

The Computer Science Bibliography Collection is also available at ten mirror sites around the world at the following sites:


North America:

Some of these mirror sites also offer a search interface to the bibliography collection.

["We don't need no stinking attributions..."]
.The best paper on types that I have read is:
.    On Understanding Types, Data Abstraction, and Polymorphism
.    by Luca Cardelli and Peter Wegner
.    Computing Surveys, Vol. 17, No. 4, December 1985
.but I have no idea if it is available via ftp.

I agree that this is a cool paper, and I don't know if it is available
by FTP either.  The place to start looking is gatekeeper.digital.com.
However, it is reachable via HTTP (World Wide Web).  Here's a URL:


!@#$%^*, that's a long URL.  I tried connecting via FTP, but my
connection was refused.  While I'm at it, here's Dr Cardelli's WWW
home page, which leads to other wild, wacky stuff:

There's a bibliography about linking on the Web (courtesy of Christian Collberg):


It's listed on the following page of language and compiler bibliographies:
