Simple Parallel R INTerface

SPRINT (Simple Parallel R INTerface) is a parallel framework for R. It provides a High Performance Computing (HPC) harness which allows R scripts to run on HPC clusters. SPRINT contains a library of selected R functions that have been parallelized. Functions are named after the original R function with the added prefix 'p', i.e. the parallel version of cor() in SPRINT is called pcor(). Call to the parallel R functions are included directly in standard R scripts. SPRINT contains functions for correlation (pcor), partitioning around medoids (ppam), apply (papply), permutation testing (pmaxT), bootstrapping (pboot), random forest (prandomForest), rank product (pRP) and hamming distance (pstringdistmatrix).
