That is the same (ungrounded) insult you have hurled at us repeatedly, and it
is still as wrong as it was the other times. Give it a rest. Whatever your
code was is now in RcppClassic. We never used anything from your shortlived

Unless I am mistaken, you have sent one patch. For a system / compiler
combination not used by R itself and also of limited to no interest to Romain
and myself, so we declined to use it. That is all. That does not constitute
If you actually sent patches we have something to look at. But I reckon you
