[R] Working with R in a multi-processor machine.

Hi everyone!!

This is my first message to the list, so I hope not to disturb anyone if the subject of my message has been already treated.

The question is that I have a tool, a GUI made with Java, connected to R using Rserve, and I'd like to get R and Rserve in a multi-processor machine. Now, when I'm going to start the migration I wonder whether R is prepared, 'itself' to optimize the use of multiple processors or if I should change the code so that it could be a real multi-processor tool.

In other words... Will the R code adapt itself to the new machine (Unix with al least 4 processors)? Or shall I change the code to have multiple real threads and transform the algorithms into parallel computing strategies?

Thanks in advance,
