Parallel Programming: Announcement

SequentialCaveman
As some of you know, I have been working on a book on parallel programming. My thought had been to complete it, then announce it. But I finally realized that it really never will be complete, at least not as long as people keep coming up with new parallel-programming ideas, which I most definitely hope will continue for a very long time.

So, here it is!

[Patch] send dvips output to file
When running "make", the generated DVI was sent directly to printer rather than into a .ps file. The patch at http://pastebin.com/tkA8wj6W fixed it for me.

Btw. do you know if there's a way to generate a Table of Contents in the PDF, which would be displayed in the side pane in many PDF viewers? That would be really useful for viewing such a large book.

Re: [Patch] send dvips output to file
I added the "-o" flags to dvips, thank you! It might be possible to generate the table of contents in the PDF by switching to pdflatex, which might be helpful for other reasons.

Re: [Patch] send dvips output to file
Thank you for the report! All of the remaining dvips commands now have "-o". Hopefully the switch from latex to pdflatex took care of your issue.

The switch to pdflatex did enable table of contents, so if you pull from the git archive and do "make", you should see a PDF TOC.
