Bug#542860: ITP: r-cran-dosnow -- GNU R parallel execution backend for %dopar% using snow

Package: wnpp
Owner: Dirk Eddelbuettel <edd@debian.org>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : r-cran-dosnow
  Version         : 1.0.3

  Description     : GNU R parallel execution backend for %dopar% using snow

This is a second backend for the recently-introduced 'foreach' framework for
R.  Besides r-cran-domc, which uses multicore and cannot span execution
across single meachines, this provides a backend for foreach's %dopar%
operator that uses the robust and well-tested snow package by Luke Tierney et
al (provided in r-cran-snow).
