Thanks for the heads up. Hadley's devtools tutorial was great as well.

I will love this recent influx of rcpp stuff and i will certainly use it to get started. I have one question though: What are the situations in which I can expect the most benefits from a c++ implementations?

couldn't get Rcpp's cppFunction to work. I downloaded the latest Revolution R on Windows 7 (Community 6.0, R version 2.14.2 (2012-02-29)), and I get

> library(Rcpp)
> cppFunction('
+ + NumericVector myRcpptest () {
+ + NumericVector out(3);
+ + for(int i = 0; i < 3; ++i) {
+ + out[i] = 0.0 + i;
+ + }
+ + return out;
+ + }
+ + ')
Error: could not find function "cppFunction"

Works OK on open-source R. Tried 32- and 64-bit versions of Revolution R. I'm wondering if I need dev tools or need to tell it where to find the compiler.

Would like to write a critical section in C++ and then also use doParallel to leverage multiple cores.

Are you sure you have the most recent Rcpp installed? devtools isn't required -- that's purely an R message.

Thank you, your code helped me.
