slurmR: A Lightweight Wrapper for 'Slurm'

'Slurm', Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management <>, is a popular 'Linux' based software used to schedule jobs in 'HPC' (High Performance Computing) clusters. This R package provides a specialized lightweight wrapper of 'Slurm' with a syntax similar to that found in the 'parallel' R package. The package also includes a method for creating socket cluster objects spanning multiple nodes that can be used with the 'parallel' package.
