There would not be a great deal of benefit to finding a new 21 mark
OGR. There already exists a 21 mark GR with a length of 332(?) spaces.
This ruler, along with many other known rulers can be applied to all the
same problems that OGR-21 could be applied to. (OGRs can be applied to phased
radio telescope arrays, however they don't determine the exact positions of
We're working on setting up a client server system to run OGR stubs on
our systems. Our interest in the OGR21 search is the ease of porting
the problem to a generic parallel distributed processing system. Aside
from the standard search code, there is also PVM based code available.
I'm happy to compare notes and share info with anyone that's interested.
