| Dirk and Matteo,
| This is a MinGW issue, which as far as I can tell is undocumented.
| When CXX_STD=CXX11 is added to Makevars.win, R ultimately translates this to "-std=c++0x" in the g++ command (via CXX1XSTD in Makeconf). For some reason, MinGW then #undefs WIN32. This doesn't happen using use "-std=gnu++0x"
| You can work around this by checking for _WIN32 instead of WIN32, or just add another define:
| #ifdef _WIN32
| #define WIN32
Nice work. That is very, very good. I had gone to my default page over at
(which is an excellent resource for these things) and got a reminder that the
"official" one is indeed _WIN32 (with underscore). However, R internally
uses WIN32 so I picked that too.
Your suggestion will provide a fallback.
| But, as you saw even with this fixed, Armadillo still has issues with the Rtools GCC...
That's the well-know problem with the toolchain we have imposed on us. We'll
have to see how we can adjust. At least it is gcc/g++ 4.6.* and not 4.2.*
as it was on Windows for many years (and still is on older OS X machines).
