ssh.utils: Local and remote system commands with output and error capture

This package provides utility functions for system command execution, both locally and remotely using ssh/scp. The command output is captured and provided to the caller. This functionality is intended to streamline calling shell commands from R, retrieving and using their output, while instrumenting the calls with appropriate error handling. NOTE: this first version is limited to unix with local and remote systems running bash as the default shell.
