Compile a .dll/.so from source.
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
compile_dll(path = ".", quiet = FALSE)
Path to a package, or within a package.
TRUEsuppresses output from this function.
Invisibly returns the names of the DLL.
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.
