C++ Classes to Embed R in C++ Applications

C++ classes to embed R in C++ applications The 'RInside' packages makes it easier to have "R inside" your C++ application by providing a C++ wrapper class providing the R interpreter. As R itself is embedded into your application, a shared library build of R is required. This works on Linux, OS X and even on Windows provided you use the same tools used to build R itself. Numerous examples are provided in the eight subdirectories of the examples/ directory of the installed package: standard, mpi (for parallel computing) qt (showing how to embed 'RInside' inside a Qt GUI application), wt (showing how to build a "web-application" using the Wt toolkit), armadillo (for 'RInside' use with 'RcppArmadillo') and eigen (for 'RInside' use with 'RcppEigen'). The example use GNUmakefile(s) with GNU extensions, so a GNU make is required (and will use the GNUmakefile automatically). Doxygen-generated documentation of the C++ classes is available at the 'RInside' website as well.

Easy embedding of R inside C++

About

The RInside package provides a few classes for seamless embedding of R inside of C++ applications by relying on Rcpp.

Examples

Provided with the package itself are eight subdirectories with examples: from more than a dozen basic command-line examples (in directory standard) to graphical user-interfaces (using both Qt and Wt), linear algebra with Armadillo and Eigen, parallel computing with MPI to a sandboxed server.

The simplest example (modulo its header) is examples/standard/rinside_sample0.cpp

#include <RInside.h>                    // for the embedded R via RInside

int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {

    RInside R(argc, argv);              // create an embedded R instance 

    R["txt"] = "Hello, world!\n";        // assign a char* (string) to 'txt'

    R.parseEvalQ("cat(txt)");           // eval the init string, ignoring any returns

    exit(0);
}

The Qt example directory produces this application for showing how to use R (to estimate densities) inside a C++ executable (providing the GUI):

The code is portable across operating systems. Similar, the Wt example directory contains this C++-based web application doing the same:
