remoter: Remote R: Control a Remote R Session from a Local One

A set of utilities for client/server computing with R, controlling a remote R session (the server) from a local one (the client). Simply set up a server (see package vignette for more details) and connect to it from your local R session ('RStudio', terminal, etc). The client/server framework is a custom 'REPL' and runs entirely in your R session without the need for installing a custom environment on your system. Network communication is handled by the 'ZeroMQ' library by way of the 'pbdZMQ' package.
