batchtools: Tools for Computation on Batch Systems

As a successor of the packages 'BatchJobs' and 'BatchExperiments', this package provides a parallel implementation of the Map function for high performance computing systems managed by schedulers 'IBM Spectrum LSF' (<http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/spectrum-computing/products/lsf/>), 'OpenLava' (<http://www.openlava.org/>), 'Univia Grid Engine'/'Oracle Grid Engine' (<http://www.univa.com/>), 'Slurm' (<http://slurm.schedmd.com/>), 'Torque/PBS' (<http://www.adaptivecomputing.com/products/open-source/torque/>), or 'Docker Swarm' (<https://docs.docker.com/swarm/>). A multicore and socket mode allow the parallelization on a local machines, and multiple machines can be hooked up via SSH to create a makeshift cluster. Moreover, the package provides an abstraction mechanism to define large-scale computer experiments in a well-organized and reproducible way.
