I know this should not go to [Rd], but the original post was there and 
the replies as well.

Thank you all who expressed interest in the "Step-by-step guide for 
using C/C++ in R"! Answering some of you, yes it is by me and was 
written to assist other group members to start adding c/c++ code to 
their R coding.

You can now download it from:


I would also appreciate your comments if you find it useful or not, or 
maybe what can be added or modified. But not on the list, directly to my 
email please.

Best wishes,
