The original "parallel" package has been extended and now contains two
independent sets of functions.
-- Functions of the original "parallel" package. Execution of
arbitrary commands on chosen remote machines. Please see
-- New functions. Scheduled execution of a user-supplied
function. Please see "README.bw".
As yet, the package only contains functions for parallel execution on
a cluster of machines. See also package openmpi_ext, maintained by
Riccardo Corradini. For parallel execution on a single machine, see
for example "parcellfun" (author: Jaroslav Hajek) in package
