Open Source works from source. This is pretty common. CRAN is comprised of
_source_ packages. But also binary packages so: What OS? On
-- Windows you have win-builder at http://win-builder.r-project.org
to have a binary built for you, see its documentation
-- OS X you may be able to do it too
-- Linux it depends on distribution but
-- for Debian / Ubuntu we have
-- several hundred packages in the distro
-- several dozen at eg the CRAN Ubuntu directories
-- thousand plus at Michael's PPAs
-- the possibility to build your own (which I just did last eve
as I wanted a new prebuilt r-cran-* for Travis)
-- other distros see their volunteers
| Can’I do It a single time ? and built it in such a way that can be used without compilation, just like we do for CRAN packages.
Please explain that statement. When I install Rcpp from CRAN on my computers
it is essentially always from source, and yes, my computers have compilers.

Small world. I once went to what was then called Aix-Marseille II (and then
went to GREQAM/EHESS at the Veille Charite).
