Brian,

Thank you for your responses, they have been very helpful.

Another question that came up involves the termination of a running command.

As an example, say that I do

rc.executeAll('commandX()')

and commandX happens to be a  long running command. Shortly after
hiting enter, I realize using commandX was a mistake.

Is there some way to halt the execution of commandX?

Based on your description of how the engines operate, I suppose this
currently isn't feasible. Have you considered creating a way to halt
commands on the engine without destroying the state of the system? I
think something like this would be useful for interactive computing
with large datasets.

Thank you,
~Doug
