New Package: partools

December 15, 2014

(This article was first published on Mad (Data) Scientist, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

I mentioned last week that I would be putting together a package, based in part on my posts on Snowdoop.  I’ve now done so, in a package partools., with the name alluding to the fact that they are intended for use with the cluster-based part of R’s parallel package.  The main ingredients are:

  • Various code snippets to faciltate parallel coding.
  • A debugging tool for parallel coding.
  • The Snowdoop functions I posted earlier.

Still in primitive form, can stand some fleshing out, but please give it a try.  I’ll be submitting to CRAN soon.
