RBigData/launchr: Launch a distributed R server on a cluster from a remote R session

Provides ease of use and configuration components for controlling a distributed set of R instances on a cluster from a remote R session (e.g. running on a laptop with RStudio). Other parallel approaches (multicore, multithreading, and GPU) are compatible with a launchr() distributed server session, which provides a means of specifying the number of R sessions per node, leaving cores available for these shared-memory applications. The intent is to provide an easy-to-use interactive SPMD-style develpment platform for distributed parallel programming in R. Leave BIG data on BIG platforms and control its analysis using R codes on your laptop.
