I've patched Dirk Eddelbuettel's Debian package of R, namely r-base, in order to make hidden symbols of the library libR.so available is now available:


For instance, the mkPROMISE symbol is available:

> yziquel_at_seldon:/usr/lib/R/lib$ nm -D libR.so | grep mkPROMISE
> 000000000011f6f0 T Rf_mkPROMISE
> yziquel_at_seldon:/usr/lib/R/lib$

Instructions for my personal repository are available here:


I hope this will be useful to people who wish to develop things, test things, reverse-engineer things from the libR.so library.

I've been told that there's an interesting scheme, used by r-base-ra, to make packages coexist with R. As of now, it simply replaces the Debian version number, currently -1, with the Debian version number -1hackable.

All the best,
