Oh c'mon we have dozens of examples in the list archives.  So here is another
one -- try with verbose=FALSE to see more:

  R> library(inline) # assume 0.3.10 for rcpp()
  R> inc <- 'const int answer = 42;'
  R> src <- 'Rcpp::Rcout << "The anwer to everything is "
  +                     << answer << std::endl;'
  R> f <- rcpp(signature(), body=src, inc=inc)
  R> f()
  The anwer to everything is 42

The included segment can have any and all valid code segments: class
definitions, function definitions, other includes, ...
