Hi Peter,

        I'm looking at MPI examples, thank you for the advice.

But If It's possible to use several instances with MPI. I think It should be possible with OpenMP.

Thank you

David Ibarra Gomez

Hi David,

It's my understanding is that the RInside class is a singleton as R is strictly single threaded. The message  you are seeing if an exception thrown because the singleton constraint is violated.

There are some examples that ship with RInside which demonstrate the use of multiple RInside processes using MPI. They might help you achieve the parallelism you are wanting.

Correct me if I'm wrong, Dirk.
