##### Create a skeleton for a new package that intends to use RcppArmadillo

RcppArmadillo.package.skeleton automates the creation of a new source package that intends to use features of RcppArmadilo. It is based on the package.skeleton function which it executes first.

Keywords
programming
##### Usage
RcppArmadillo.package.skeleton(name = "anRpackage", list = character(),
environment = .GlobalEnv, path = ".", force = FALSE,
code_files = character(), example_code = TRUE)
##### Arguments
name
See package.skeleton
list
See package.skeleton
environment
See package.skeleton
path
See package.skeleton
force
See package.skeleton
code_files
See package.skeleton
example_code
If TRUE, example c++ code using RcppArmadillo is added to the package
##### Details

In addition to package.skeleton : The DESCRIPTION file gains a Depends line requesting that the package depends on Rcpp and RcppArmadillo and a LinkingTo line so that the package finds Rcpp and RcppArmadillo header files. The NAMESPACE, if any, gains a useDynLib directive. The src directory is created if it does not exists and a Makevars file is added setting the environment variable PKG_LIBS to accomodate the necessary flags to link with the Rcpp library. If the example_code argument is set to TRUE, example files rcpparma_hello_world.h and rcpparma_hello_world.cpp are also created in the src. An R file rcpparma_hello_world.R is expanded in the R directory, the rcpparma_hello_world function defined in this files makes use of the C++ function rcpparma_hello_world defined in the C++ file. These files are given as an example and should eventually by removed from the generated package.

##### Value

Nothing, used for its side effects

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