Abstracts of FTP-able Files

The Functional Programming Group

University of Glasgow

1 Introduction

This document describes the papers in the Functional Programming Group's FTP archive at Glasgow University. The archive is divided into three areas:

papers Published papers.

tech reports Internal Technical Reports.

authors Private" FTP areas for individual authors.

In some cases, papers may be duplicated between these areas (for example, a multi-author paper may be linked into the authors' directories and into the papers directory).

All papers added to the papers and tech reports directories after March 1st 1993 (and a few from before that) are described here. To access these files, use Internet FTP to connect to [], and cd to pub/glasgow-fp/fpapers,tech reportsg before fetching the files you require. The transcript of a sample session (to fetch this file!) is shown below. Some other sites (e.g. mirror" our files. Under some situations, you may find it faster to use one of these sites rather than connecting to Glasgow.

All files are compressed using Unix compress where possible. Note that you must set your FTP program into binary mode before transferring these files. In common with other sites, we use the suffix .ps.Z for compressed Postscript files, and .dvi.Z for compressed DVI files. Please contact the FTP maintainer ([email protected]) if you have problems.
