Abstract

Summary: We present a distributed and fully cross-platform database search program that allows the user to utilise the idle clock cycles of machines to perform large searches using the most sensitive algorithms. For those in an academic or corporate environment with hundreds of idle desktop machines, DSEARCH can deliver a ‘free’ database search supercomputer. Availability: The software is publicly available under the GNU general public licence from http://www.cs.may.ie/distributed Contact: tom.naughton@may.ie Supplementary Information: Full documentation and a user manual is available from http://www.cs.may.ie/distributed
