Description: R package future. A Future API for R is provided. In programming, a future is an abstraction for a value that may be available at some point in the future. The state of a future can either be unresolved or resolved. As soon as it is resolved, the value is available. Futures are useful constructs in for instance concurrent evaluation, e.g. parallel processing and distributed processing on compute clusters. The purpose of this package is to provide a lightweight interface for using futures in R. Functions ’future()’ and ’value()’ exist for creating futures and requesting their values, e.g. ’f <- future({ mandelbrot(-0.75, 0, side=3) })’ and ’v <- value(f)’. The ’resolved()’ function can be used to check if a future is resolved or not. An infix assignment operator ’
