Pragmatic General Multicast (PGM) is a reliable multicast transport pro-
tocol for applications that require ordered or unordered, duplicate-
free, multicast data delivery from multiple sources to multiple
receivers. PGM guarantees that a receiver in the group either receives
all data packets from transmissions and repairs, or is able to detect
unrecoverable data packet loss. PGM is specifically intended as a work-
able solution for multicast applications with basic reliability require-
ments. Its central design goal is simplicity of operation with due
regard for scalability and network efficiency.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
