This is the ftp area of the Electronic Library at Stanford University.
The following is currently available:
Technical Reports and Technical Notes via ftp:
Anonymous ftp to ELIB.Stanford.EDU and cd to pub/reports.
The directory structure reflects the report id. For example
the files for the Computer Science Technical Report
CS-TR-93-1491 is are found in the directory
/pub/reports/cs/tr/93/1491. The procedure is: change
the dashes in the report id to slashes and prefice the
resulting string with the string "/pub/reports/".
Each directory contains several files and subdirectories:
nnnxnnnxn-TIFF-PAGE-IMAGES are subdirectories which contain
scanned images of the individual pages of the report.
Each file in this subdirectory contains one page of
CS-TR-yy-nnn.OCR.txt is the OCR'd text of the report. This
is an ASCII file produced by using Optical Character
Recognition on the tiff images. These files contain
a lot of recognition errors and are only meant to be
used by indexing software, although some are readable.
CS-TR-yy-nnnn.bib A file containing bibliographic information
about the report, in RFC1357 format.
CS-TR-yy-nnnn.ps The report in postscript format. This file
may not be present for all reports. It is only present,
if the authors have made it available to us.
CS-TR-yy-nnnn.str The structure of the report.
Indices by author and report number are available in the
pub/reports/index directory as num_index and author_index.
