./devel/R-Rcpp, Seamless R and C++ Integration

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.12.17, Package name: R-Rcpp-0.12.17, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The Rcpp package provides R functions as well as a C++ library which
facilitate the integration of R and C++.

R data types (SEXP) are matched to C++ objects in a class hierarchy.
All R types are supported (vectors, functions, environment, etc ...)
and each type is mapped to a dedicated class. For example, numeric
vectors are represented as instances of the Rcpp::NumericVector class,
environments are represented as instances of Rcpp::Environment,
functions are represented as Rcpp::Function, etc ... The
"Rcpp-introduction" vignette provides a good entry point to Rcpp.

Rcpp also provides Rcpp modules, a framework that allows exposing C++
functions and classes to the R level. The "Rcpp-modules" vignette
details the current set of features of Rcpp-modules.

Rcpp includes a concept called Rcpp sugar that brings many R functions
into C++. Sugar takes advantage of lazy evaluation and expression
templates to achieve great performance while exposing a syntax that is
much nicer to use than the equivalent low-level loop code. The
"Rcpp-sugar" vignette gives an overview of the feature.

Additional documentation is available via the paper by Eddelbuettel
and Francois (2011, JSS) paper and the book by Eddelbuettel (2013,
Springer); see 'citation("Rcpp")' for details.

Log message:
Remove MASTER_SITES= from individual R package Makefiles.

Each R package should include ../../math/R/Makefile.extension, which also
defines MASTER_SITES.  Consequently, it is redundant for the individual
packages to do the same.  Package-specific definitions also prevent
redefining MASTER_SITES in a single common place.

Log message:
Update to 0.12.17

Upstream changes:
Changes in Rcpp version 0.12.17 (2018-05-09)
Changes in Rcpp API:

The random number Generator class no longer inhreits from RNGScope (Kevin in \ 
#837 fixing #836).

A spurious parenthesis was removed to please gcc8 (Dirk fixing #841)

The optional Timer class header now undefines FALSE which was seen to have \ 
side-effects on some platforms (Romain in #847 fixing #846).

Optional StoragePolicy attributes now also work for string vectors (Romain in \ 
#850 fixing #849).

Changes in Rcpp Documentation:

A few old typesetting conventions from the prior Rnw format have been corrected \ 
(Peter Hickey in #831; Joris Meys; Dirk)

Two internal links to the introduction published in JSS have been updated to the \ 
changed filename given the newer TAS introduction.

Some remaining backticks were replaced with straight quotes (Ralf Stubner in #845).

A citation to the Rcpp introducion in the The American Statistician has been \ 
added to the introductory and FAQ vignettes.

Changes in Rcpp version 0.12.16 (2018-03-08)
Changes in Rcpp API:

Rcpp now sets and puts the RNG state upon each entry to an Rcpp function, \ 
ensuring that nested invocations of Rcpp functions manage the RNG state as \ 
expected (Kevin in #825 addressing #823).

The R::pythag wrapper has been commented out; the underlying function has been \ 
gone from R since 2.14.0, and ::hypot() (part of C99) is now used \ 
unconditionally for complex numbers (Dirk in #826).

The long long type can now be used on 64-bit Windows (Kevin in #811 and again in \ 
#829 addressing #804).

Changes in Rcpp Attributes:

Code generated with cppFunction() now uses .Call() directly (Kirill Mueller in \ 
#813 addressing #795).

Changes in Rcpp Documentation:

The Rcpp FAQ vignette is now indexed as 'Rcpp-FAQ'; a stale Gmane reference was \ 
removed and entry for getting compilers under Conda was added.

The top-level README.md now has a Support section.

The Rcpp.bib reference file was refreshed to current versions.

Update to 0.12.6

Upstream changes:
Changes in Rcpp version 0.12.6 (2016-07-18)

    Changes in Rcpp API:

        The long long data type is used only if it is available, to avoid \ 
compiler warnings (Kirill Müller in #488).

        The compiler is made aware that stop() never returns, to improve code \ 
path analysis (Kirill Müller in #487 addressing issue #486).

        String replacement was corrected (Qiang in #479 following mailing list \ 
bug report by Masaki Tsuda)

        Allow for UTF-8 encoding in error messages via \ 
RCPP_USING_UTF8_ERROR_STRING macro (Qin Wenfeng in #493)

        The R function Rf_warningcall is now provided as well (as usual without \ 
leading Rf_) (#497 fixing #495)

    Changes in Rcpp Sugar:

        Const-ness of min and max functions has been corrected. (Dan Dillon in \ 
PR #478 fixing issue #477).

        Ambiguities for matrix/vector and scalar operations have been fixed (Dan \ 
Dillon in PR #476 fixing issue #475).

        New algorithm header using iterator-based approach for vectorized \ 
functions (Dan in PR #481 revisiting PR #428 and addressing issue #426, with \ 
futher work by Kirill in PR #488 and Nathan in #503 fixing issue #502).

        The na_omit() function is now faster for vectors without NA values \ 
(Artem Klevtsov in PR #492)

    Changes in Rcpp Attributes:

        Add cacheDir argument to sourceCpp() to enable caching of shared \ 
libraries across R sessions (JJ in #504).

        Code generation now deals correctly which packages containing a dot in \ 
their name (Qiang in #501 fixing #500).

    Changes in Rcpp Documentation:

        A section on default parameters was added to the Rcpp FAQ vignette \ 
(James Balamuta in #505 fixing #418).

        The Rcpp-attributes vignette is now mentioned more prominently in \ 
question one of the Rcpp FAQ vignette.

        The Rcpp Quick Reference vignette received a facelift with new sections \ 
on Rcpp attributes and plugins begin added. (James Balamuta in #509 fixing \ 

        The bib file was updated with respect to the recent JSS publication for \
