Works great for me -- very cool.
One question that's been bothering me -- how are module-based objects
*supposed* to behave across an R session quit/save/restart cycle? I'm
seeing no persistence, and a consistent segfault. Am I missing
something here (perhaps wrt finalizer)? If not, I'd like to add a
note to the vignette...
Using the supplied example, I get:
modtest <- new(World)
## everything works
## Save workspace image? [y/n/c]: y
## exit, save, restart -- nothing works
# [Previously saved workspace restored]
# During startup - Warning message:
# Class "C++Object" is defined (with package slot ‘Rcpp’) but no
metadata object found to revise subclass information---not exported?
Making a copy in package ‘.GlobalEnv’
#Error in .External(list(name = "CppMethod__invoke_notvoid", address =
<pointer: (nil)>, :
# NULL value passed as symbol address
*** caught segfault ***
address 0x8, cause 'memory not mapped'
1: .Call(Class__name, cppclass)
2: sprintf("C++ object <%s> of class '%s' <%s>",
externalptr_address(pointer), .Call(Class__name, cppclass),
1: abort (with core dump, if enabled)
2: normal R exit
3: exit R without saving workspace
4: exit R saving workspace
