[Rd] C function with unknown output length

Hi all,

Could anyone point me to one or more examples in the R sources of a C function that is called without knowing in advance what will be the length (say) of the output vector?

To make myself clearer, we have a C function that computes probabilities until their sum gets "close enough" to 1. Hence, the number of probabilities is not known in advance.

I would like to have an idea what is the best way to handle this situation in R.

Thanks in advance!
