Dear list,

is R capable of multithreading? At the moment it uses only 1 CPU
out of 4 CPUs on my system. Is there a compilation option or start option so
that R uses multiple CPUs at the same time to accomplish a calculation?

Some information on my system:

> R.version
platform       x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
arch           x86_64
os             linux-gnu
system         x86_64, linux-gnu
major          2
minor          3.1
year           2006
month          06
day            01
svn rev        38247
language       R
version.string Version 2.3.1 (2006-06-01)

Best regards,
