This requires building R from the source. There are a lot of things that can go wrong if you don't have the right tools. A much easier method for making R.exp is documented in the RcppTemplate package. I think the manual should refer to the RcppTemplate package for building DLL's with other compilers than Gnu. mailing list Received on Wed Nov 15 17:36:26 2006
