Re: [Rd] R CMD SHLIB in Windows XP - No output at all

Hi Duncan,

Thanks for your help, I am actually using R Windows version 2.14.1 (22th Dec 2011).

Actually by "R CMD SHLIB *.*" I actually meant putting any file name after the R CMD SHLIB ("R CMD SHLIB convolve.c" for example). Another case which fails is : creating a Rcpp Armadillo package skeleton (named MyPackage for example) and trying the R CMD INSTALL MyPackage. Fails as well on the R CMD SHLIB line.

What I actually don't understand is how the R CMD SHLIB command links to the RTools cygwin and mingw.
It really looks like the "make" function works in my command line when I use it directly but the link between R CMD SHLIB and cygwin fails...
