a c++ implementation of the uniprocessor algorithm referenced in
file found on the above papers.html page. The version currently on boost
(in the
file in file lib/gc_sel_ssp/special/subjtop_lazy_crc.cpp )
does not implement to improvement that's mentioned below fig 1 in the pdf
file; however,
I THINK further development after that upload does have the improvements.
I'm away from
my computer
for about 12 days, but then I can check to make sure and upload whatever
I've got to boost. Since boost is
currently working on a threads library, maybe soon some boost threads
experts could
help implement the concurrent version mentioned in the Bacon pdf file.
