I have a few questions regarding the snow package:
1) Is fine-grained parallelism even possible with R/snow?
(ie, one task that spawns sub-tasks to do work, with results sent back to the
The example(s) only seem to be totally-independent processing (which can be
done just as easily
with shell-script wrappers....)
2) If so, is an example available?
3. If not, then it is still worth messing with snow to see if you can get an R
program to skip through multiple directories, doing the independent processing
in each to avoid a potential race condition that could occur if multiple R
process one with one .RData file.
Thanks a lot!
