getRcppVersion: Export the Rcpp (API) Package Version

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/tools.R

Description

Helper function to report the package version of the R installation.

Usage

1

Arguments

devel

An logical value indicating if the development or release version number should be returned, default is release.

Details

While packageVersion(Rcpp) exports the version registers in DESCRIPTION, this version does get incremented more easily during development and can therefore be higher than the released version. The actual #define long used at the C++ level corresponds more to an ‘API Version’ which is now provided by this function, and use for example in the package skeleton generator.

Value

A package_version object with either the release or development version.
