Creates a distributed array with the specified partitioning and contents.

1 2 3 4 5 |

`nparts` |
vector specifying number of partitions. If missing, 'psize' and 'dim' must be provided. |

`dim` |
the dim attribute for the array to be created. A vector specifying number of rows and columns. |

`psize` |
size of each partition as a vector specifying number of rows and columns. This parameter is provided together with dim. |

`data` |
initial value of all elements in array. Default is 0. |

`sparse` |
If TRUE, the output darray will be of type sparse_darray. The default value is FALSE. |

Array partitions are internally stored as dense matrices. Last set of partitions may have fewer rows or columns if the array size is not an integer multiple of partition size. For example, the distributed array 'darray(dim=c(5,5), psize=c(2,5))' has three partitions. The first two partitions have two rows each but the last partition has only one row. All three partitions have five columns.

Distributed arrays can also be defined by specifying just the number of partitions, but not their sizes. This flexibility is useful when the size of an array is not known apriori. For example, 'darray(nparts=c(5,1))' is a dense array with five partitions. Each partition can contain any number of rows, though the number of columns should be same to conform to a well formed array.

Distributed arrays can be fetched at the master using
`collect`

. Number of partitions can be obtained by
`nparts`

. Partitions are numbered from left to right, and
then top to bottom, i.e., row major order. Dimension of each
partition can be obtained using `psize`

.

Returns a distributed array with the specified dimensions. Data may reside as partitions in remote nodes.
