[Developers] FW: parallel processing

MPI may indeed be the preferred tool, but I'm finding it a bit difficult 
to get started. The docs appear to be little more than man pages. 
Yesterday, I discovered some doxygen stuff in the source code distro 
(openmpi-1.4.3). There are some books listed on amazon, but they may be 
a bit dated.

There is some stuff on openmpi at 
http://heather.cs.ucdavis.edu/~matloff/openmp.html which discusses 
pragmas. And and an undated book by the same author Norm Matloff 

Anybody else have any better docs?

Perhaps the redmine forum would be a good place to post references?
