Package 'RInside'

Title: C++ Classes to Embed R in C++ (and C) Applications
Description: C++ classes to embed R in C++ (and C) applications A C++ class providing the R interpreter is offered by this package making it easier to have "R inside" your C++ application. As R itself is embedded into your application, a shared library build of R is required. This works on Linux, OS X and even on Windows provided you use the same tools used to build R itself. Numerous examples are provided in the nine subdirectories of the examples/ directory of the installed package: standard, 'mpi' (for parallel computing), 'qt' (showing how to embed 'RInside' inside a Qt GUI application), 'wt' (showing how to build a "web-application" using the Wt toolkit), 'armadillo' (for 'RInside' use with 'RcppArmadillo'), 'eigen' (for 'RInside' use with 'RcppEigen'), and 'c_interface' for a basic C interface and 'Ruby' illustration. The examples use 'GNUmakefile(s)' with GNU extensions, so a GNU make is required (and will use the 'GNUmakefile' automatically). 'Doxygen'-generated documentation of the C++ classes is available at the 'RInside' website as well.

Embedding R in C++ applications


The RInside package makes it easier to embed R in your C++ applications. There is no code you would execute directly from the R environment. Rather, you write C++ programs that embed R which is illustrated by some the included examples.
