background: This packages allow users to ``background'' computations.
Version 0.1

Perform calculations concurently in the background thereby freeing the R console to perform other tasks. The package currently supports a sequential backend, where the calculation is evaluted when it is brought into the foreground along with a multicore backend, where the calculation is started immediately after it is backgrounded. Other packages, such as multicore.background can be used for true process backgrounding.
