Also, please read the "Rcpp Attributes" vignette to get a feel for the
transition to packages -- which are _the_ default unit of code dissemination
and deployment for R.  _Everything_ evolves around it with R, and if you want
to use a different environment (like Netbeans) make sure you allow it launch
the proper _R-centric_ commands (eg R CMD COMPILE ...) rather than a naked g++.

We write C++ code here, but we do it in the context of R. Context matters.

Tschoe mit oe,  Dirk
