Recall that Rcpp is 'merely' a higher-level C++ interface playing along and
on top of the R API itself --- so for questions like this check the R
headers, documentation and 'Writing R Extensions' manual.
In this case, per the Rinternals.h header:
/* Various tests with macro versions below */
Rboolean (Rf_isNull)(SEXP s);
Rboolean (Rf_isSymbol)(SEXP s);
Rboolean (Rf_isLogical)(SEXP s);
Rboolean (Rf_isReal)(SEXP s);
Rboolean (Rf_isComplex)(SEXP s);
Rboolean (Rf_isExpression)(SEXP s);
Rboolean (Rf_isEnvironment)(SEXP s);
Rboolean (Rf_isString)(SEXP s);
Rboolean (Rf_isObject)(SEXP s);
so Rf_isNull( someSexpVar ) is what you want. Works for any SEXP whether
you access it as a single var, or pick it from a list.
Hope this helps, Dirk
Gauss once played himself in a zero-sum game and won $50.
