'Asio' is a cross-platform C++ library for network and low-level I/O programming that provides developers with a consistent asynchronous model using a modern C++ approach. 'Asio' is also included in Boost but requires linking when used with Boost. Standalone it can be used header-only provided a recent-enough compiler. 'Asio' is written and maintained by Christopher M. Kohlhoff. 'Asio' is released under the 'Boost Software License', Version 1.0.

This package provides R with access to Asio header files. Asio provides a cross-platform C++ library for network and low-level I/O programming. It is also included in Boost -- but requires linking when used as part of Boost. This standalone version of Asio is a header-only C++ library which can be used without linking (just like our BH package with parts of Boost).

By providing the Asio library in this package, we offer a more efficient distribution system for CRAN as replication of this code in the sources of other packages is avoided.

To use it, simply add it to the LinkingTo: field in the DESCRIPTION field of your R package---and the R package infrastructure tools will then know how to set include flags correctly on all architectures supported by R.

See the BH package for related (and also header-only) libraries from Boost.
