#' RProcessFinishUI
#'
#' This is the UI part of a module to observe R scripts which are running as background processes from the shiny session.
#' It consists of only a red text field which will be visible as an error message if something during script execution went wrong.
#'
#' For more details see the documentation of the corresponding \code{\link{RProcessFinish}} function.

#' RProcessFinish
#'
#'  This module observes a custom R script.
#'  Together with \code{\link{RProcessStart}} this module can start and observe a custom R script as background process.
#'  Both functions are combined in a convenience function \code{\link{RProcess}}.
#'
#'  If this function is used together with \code{\link{RProcessStart}}, they both need to be called with the same \code{id}
#'  and the same \code{pwd} (working directory).
#'
#'  The communication between the shiny session and the R script is done via a \code{*.status} file.
#'  Input and output are handed over via a \code{*.rds} file.
#'  The working directory of the process can be defined with \code{pwd}.
#'  This is where the files are read and written as well.
#'
#'  To ensure that the communication between the shiny session and the R script is working properly, use \code{\link{Rscript_Init}}
#'  to start the script and \code{\link{Rscript_Fin}} to finish it.
#'  These functions belong to the Rscript communication function which should be used in the R script for communication with the shiny session.
#'  For examples see the vignette on \emph{RProcess Module Functions} (\code{vignette("RProcess_functions", package = "shinyTools")}).
