The Project
This program was a project started for our CS5621 course in the spring of 2008. The goal of the project was to use MPI and the c programming language to filter large amounts of text for 'interesting' phrases. Although this program will accept any input directory, development was targeted at a specific English corpus containing 1,829,064,023 words split up into 314 individual files.
