SNOW is a CRAN package (not part of Bioconductor) so if you are just
looking for examples of using SNOW, you may want to ask on the R-help
list if your use case is not Bioconductor-specific.

They'll tell you it's recommended now to use the parallel package
(part of R) instead of SNOW.

I'm not sure what kind of sample code you are looking for or what you
want to accomplish, but there is a tutorial on parallel evaluation on
the page of a course we recently gave:


See chapter 8 of the PDF.
