[R] Using the Sun Grid Engine with R-3.0

Dear all

In previous R versions I ran R jobs on our cluster managed by SUN Grid 
Engine using the Rsge package. With the R-3.0 release, the package Rsge 
has been discontinued. What would be the equivalent way of running jobs 
on the cluster using current packages?

I understand that the parallel package has been updated. What would be 
the equivalent to the lines below:

sge.options("sge.qsub.options"="-cwd -q GT -pe smp 8 -l C=2")

jobList = list( ....)
myJobFunc  = function(x) {....}
result = sge.parLapply(jobList, myJobFunc, njobs=length(jobList))

Many thanks
Hubert Rehrauer
