Re: How to local files on ParallelKernels

I would suggest some folder sharing solution. For example
on linux I usually mount (the most convenient way) remote computer folder 
using sshfs (or your can use some version of nfs).  Then the 
remote computer file can be silmultaneously opened by all kernels.
However be carefull: my expierence shows that simultaneus writing of long 
enought expression yields an unpredictable mixture of outputs.

Sincerely, Arturas
