mcparallelDo: A Simplified Interface for Running Commands on Parallel Processes

Provides a function that wraps mcparallel() and mccollect() from 'parallel' with temporary variables and a task handler. Wrapped in this way the results of an mcparallel() call can be returned to the R session when the fork is complete without explicitly issuing a specific mccollect() to retrieve the value. Outside of top-level tasks, multiple mcparallel() jobs can be retrieved with a single call to mcparallelDoCheck().
