I'm running R under openmpi by starting emacs, opening a shell, giving
the command 'mpirun -np 8 --hostfile hosts RMPIInteractive' which leaves
me in the head R session. Then I use ess-remote on that session.
The problem comes when I quit R. The buffer remains in iESS mode, and
shell commands I type at the prompt don't seem to work. If I say M-x
shell-mode then the shell starts working, and I can repeat the whole
Is there a better way to handle this? Ideally, ess would be able to
tell when I was done with R and revert to the previous mode. (Even more
ideally it would automatically re-activate iEss mode when I retstarted
A somewhat related problem, though I think it's more of an MPI issue, is
that the R session I launch does not think it is interactive. This
makes error handling awkard.
I'd appreciate any suggestsion.
