[R] calling R from C or C++

I have C/C++ code from which I wish I could call R to do something useful.

I saw a 2003 message by Thomas saying that "You can compile R as a shared library, which allows you to construct and evaluate R expressions from C." Any more information would be helpful. I am looking for some documentation that has a more step by step like instructions. Anyone who has experience, please point me to some resources.

ps. There is a document on CRAN named "Writing R extensions" which seems relevant, but it was too difficult for me to understand.

Thanks in advance!
