I am confused. And just maybe so are you?  What exactly is it you are trying
to do _with C_ using _Rcpp from the outside_ /

Rcpp is an R package, which provides a richer C++ API on top of an underlying
C API native to R.  That's all.

[ We have other things such as RInside which are related and which allow you
to embed in C++ applications, but that is another story.  We have no pure C
libraries here. ]
