Name        : blacs
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 1.1
Release     : 35.fc12
URL         : http://www.netlib.org/blacs
Summary     : Basic Linear Algebra Communication Subprograms
Description :
The BLACS (Basic Linear Algebra Communication Subprograms) project is
an ongoing investigation whose purpose is to create a linear algebra
oriented message passing interface that may be implemented efficiently
and uniformly across a large range of distributed memory platforms.

The length of time required to implement efficient distributed memory
algorithms makes it impractical to rewrite programs for every new
parallel machine. The BLACS exist in order to make linear algebra
applications both easier to program and more portable.
