compile_dll: Compile a .dll/.so from source.

Description Usage Arguments Details Note See Also

View source: R/compile-dll.R

Description

compile_dll performs a fake R CMD install so code that works here should work with a regular install (and vice versa). During compilation, debug flags are set with compiler_flags(TRUE).

compile_dll(
  path = ".",
  force = FALSE,
  compile_attributes = pkg_links_to_cpp11(path) || pkg_links_to_rcpp(path),
  register_routines = FALSE,
  quiet = FALSE,
  debug = TRUE
)

Arguments

path

Path to a package, or within a package.

force

If TRUE, for compilation even if needs_compile() is FALSE.

compile_attributes

if TRUE and the package uses Rcpp, call Rcpp::compileAttributes() before building the package. It is ignored if package does not need compilation.

register_routines

if TRUE and the package does not use Rcpp, call register routines with tools::package_native_routine_registration_skeleton() before building the package. It is ignored if package does not need compilation.

quiet

if TRUE suppresses output from this function.

debug

If TRUE, and if no user Makevars is found, then the build runs without optimisation (-O0) and with debug symbols (-g). See compiler_flags() for details. If you have a user Makevars (e.g., ~/.R/Makevars) then this argument is ignored.

Details

Invisibly returns the names of the DLL.

Note

If this is used to compile code that uses Rcpp, you will need to add the following line to your Makevars file so that it knows where to find the Rcpp headers: PKG_CPPFLAGS=$(R_HOME)/bin/Rscript -e 'Rcpp:::CxxFlags()'“

clean_dll() to delete the compiled files.
