[Rcpp-devel] more on stats functions

See Runit::defineTestSuite and its testFileRegexp and testFuncRegexp parameters.

In each project I work on, one of the first things I set up is a little RScript helper that runs a particular test suite. Also, instead of sourcing files directly, this script adds the Rcheck directory to the front of .libPaths, so that I can 'require' the package and know I'm testing the most recent code. The drawback is that I have to 'R CMD check' every time after I make a change to the source before running the tests. (I guess using Make would take care of that.)
