nice (UNIX priority) package for R

University of Minnesota, Twin Cities     School of Statistics     Charlie's Home Page

New! Now at CRAN.

This web page provides an interface from the R statistical computing environment to the UNIX priority facility.

There's no particular point to using this for interactive R sessions or for R CMD BATCH jobs (you can nice either at startup). It was written for niceing slaves in snow jobs (the R snow package).

New! Current version nice_0.3.tar.gz.

The R help is nice.
