Handle parallel (vectorized) objective functions in a new optimization wrapper package
by thirdwing for R Project for statistical Computing
The idea is to allow vectorized call of ‘fn’ argument. Exmaple: for now, when nmkb is building a polytype, the points are passed to ‘fn’ sequentially. If the points could be submitted at the same time to ‘fn’ (that is the 'vectorized’ or 'paralleled' way), ‘fn’ may be able to parallelize these evaluations.
