demangle: c++ type information

demangleR Documentation

c++ type information

Description

demangle gives the demangled type, sizeof its size (in bytes).

Usage

    demangle(type = "int", ...)
    sizeof(type = "int", ...)

Arguments

type

The type we want to demangle

...

Further argument for cppFunction

Details

The following function is compiled and invoked:

        SEXP demangle_this_type(){
            typedef 
            return wrap( DEMANGLE(type) ) ;
        }
        
        SEXP sizeof_this_type(){
            typedef 
            return wrap( sizeof(type) ) ;
        }
    

DEMANGLE is a macro in Rcpp that does the work.

Value

The demangled type, as a string.

Note

We only know how to demangle with gcc. If you know how to demangle types with your compiler, let us know.
