Create a skeleton for a new package depending on RcppParallel


RcppParallel.package.skeleton automates the creation of a new source package that intends to use features of RcppParallel.


RcppParallel.package.skeleton(name = "anRpackage", example_code = TRUE, ...)



The name of your R package.


If TRUE, example C++ code using RcppParallel is added to the package.


Optional arguments passed to Rcpp.package.skeleton.


It is based on the package.skeleton function which it executes first.

In addition to Rcpp.package.skeleton :

The DESCRIPTION file gains an Imports line requesting that the package depends on RcppParallel and a LinkingTo line so that the package finds RcppParallel header files.

The NAMESPACE gains a useDynLib directive as well as an importFrom(RcppParallel, evalCpp to ensure instantiation of RcppParallel.

The src directory is created if it does not exists and a Makevars file is added setting the environment variables PKG_LIBS to accomodate the necessary flags to link with the RcppParallel library.

If the example_code argument is set to TRUE, example files vector-sum.cpp is created in the src directory. Rcpp::compileAttributes() is then called to generate src/RcppExports.cpp and R/RcppExports.R. These files are given as an example and should eventually by removed from the generated package.


Nothing, used for its side effects


Read the Writing R Extensions manual for more details.

Once you have created a source package you need to install it: see the R Installation and Administration manual, INSTALL and install.packages.
