ink1">ink1">Dear all,

running the example by D. Eddebuettel (http://dirk.eddelbuettel.com/blog/2011/04/23/) I get an error message. Specifically, the R code I was taking from the above example is

### BEGIN EXAMPLE ###

suppressMessages(require(RcppArmadillo))
suppressMessages(require(Rcpp))
suppressMessages(require(inline))

code <- '

   arma::mat coeff = Rcpp::as<arma::mat>(a);    arma::mat errors = Rcpp::as<arma::mat>(e);    int m = errors.n_rows; int n = errors.n_cols;    arma::mat simdata(m,n);
   simdata.row(0) = arma::zeros<arma::mat>(1,n);    for (int row=1; row<m; row++) {
     simdata.row(row) = simdata.row(row-1)*trans(coeff)+errors.row(row);    }
   return Rcpp::wrap(simdata);
 '
## create the compiled function
rcppSim <- cxxfunction(signature(a="numeric",e="numeric"),

                        code,plugin="RcppArmadillo")

### END OF EXAMPLE ###
Executing this inside R, returned the following:

I am working under R 2.14.0 and as the pros among you might guess, I am new to using the C++ interfaces within R. I think all I have to do is to edit some settings on my Windows 7 machine here, but the error message is too cryptic to me. Alas, I could also not find any thread or help topic that deals with this online. I appreciate any direct reply or reference where I can find a solution to this. Please let me know in case I am leaving out some essential details here.

Many thanks,
Paul
