Greetings R-community,

I'm running simulations within R that I wrote in C. The simulations
require fitting that occasionally fails to finish. I was wondering if
there is any kind of tool for process control in R, such that after e.g.
15 minutes I could kill the process, record the state for post-hoc
analysis, and move to the next simulation?

I'm running FreeBSD and could almost surely do something in Perl but I'd
rather stay inside R if possible.

Thanks,

Andrew
