[Rcpp-devel] broken package after udpate

This is about one of C++ most annoying things. order of includes.
To make it short, the function that is responsible for making an R
object out of the returned arma::mat is module_wrap, which calls wrap,
Where module_wrap is currently written, it does not "see" the wrap()
overloads from RcpppArmadillo so it just uses a version that uses
begin() and end() and therefor just creates a vector.
So, alright. I broke this. This is an easy fix, although I'm afraid one
that has to happen in Rcpp.
A contingency measure might be to write your euler function like this:
SEXP euler(const double phi, const double theta, const double psi)
{
arma::mat Rot(3,3);
const double cosphi = cos(phi), cospsi = cos(psi), costheta =
cos(theta);
const double sinphi = sin(phi), sinpsi = sin(psi), sintheta =
sin(theta);
Rot(0,0) = cospsi*cosphi - costheta*sinphi*sinpsi;
Rot(0,1) = cospsi*sinphi + costheta*cosphi*sinpsi;
Rot(0,2) = sinpsi*sintheta;
Rot(1,0) = -sinpsi*cosphi - costheta*sinphi*cospsi;
Rot(1,1) = -sinpsi*sinphi + costheta*cosphi*cospsi;
Rot(1,2) = cospsi*sintheta;
Rot(2,0) = sinphi*sintheta;
Rot(2,1) = -cosphi*sintheta;
Rot(2,2) = costheta;
return wrap(Rot);
}
because there you call the right "wrap".
Of course, the desired behaviour of having arma::mat as returned type
will be brought back.
