This is the development version of SharedObject; for the stable release version, see SharedObject.

Sharing R objects across multiple R processes without memory duplication

Bioconductor version: Development (3.19)

This package is developed for facilitating parallel computing in R. It is capable to create an R object in the shared memory space and share the data across multiple R processes. It avoids the overhead of memory dulplication and data transfer, which make sharing big data object across many clusters possible.
