High performance parallel code execution and distributed computing. Designed for simplicity, a 'mirai' evaluates an R expression asynchronously, on local or network resources, resolving automatically upon completion. Modern networking and concurrency built on 'nanonext' and 'NNG' (Nanomsg Next Gen) ensures reliable and efficient scheduling, over fast inter-process communications or TCP/IP secured by TLS.


For local mirai requests, the default transport for inter-process communications is platform-dependent: abstract Unix domain sockets on Linux, Unix domain sockets on MacOS, Solaris and other POSIX platforms, and named pipes on Windows.

This may be overriden, if desired, by specifying 'url' in the daemons interface and launching daemons using launch_local.
