[Rcpp-devel] Using sparse matrices from the Matrix package in Rcpp

I would suggest using the eigen library, Rccp has an interface to 
this. Alternately, you could link to the boost graph library.

When graphs grow large storing all the 0's becomes uneconomical, so I want to use sparse matrices (from the Matrix package) for large graphs instead. Simple indexing operations like M[i,j] however are very slow, so I wonder if there are ways of dealing with sparse matrices (and rapid indexing) in the Rcpp framework. Apologies if I have overlooked posts on this topic.

It is difficult to find a black cat in a dark room,
