Is the rmpi package (or rpvm) needed to exploit multiple cores on a single unix box using the snow package. The documentation of the package does not provide info about setting up a single machine with multiple cores. Also, if how effective is it to run a bayesian simulation on parallel (or distributed) processors using the snow package. Thanks,
Saeed
