[R] running R command in the background

Fri Jun 4 19:32:48 CEST 2004

Is there a way to call an R function to work in the background within the same R session? What I have in mind is the equivalent of adding '&' at the end of a UNIX command, so that R can process an intensive command while I execute other R commands. I want to do this in the same R session, rather than with multiple calls to R, so that all my modified objects will stay in the same workspace.

I would appreciate any help with this.
