Hi All

Had anyone of you seen if it is possible to split a large lme() job to be 
processed by multiple cpus/computers?

I am just at the very beginning to understand related things, but does the lme() 
use solution finding functions like nlm() mle(), and I-dont-know-what-else of 
the standard R pagage or does lme come with its own? If the former, has onyone 
seen how to split an mle() function call to be processed by multiple cpus?

In the case if, I would very much appreicate your hint or point to a source 
where I can read about.

Thanks Toby
