"Writing R Extensions" manual contains chapters dedicated to parsing and
evaluating of the R extensions from C.
Also, I vaguely remember I've seen something like "Embedding R" somewhere in
R can be compiled as a shared library object, that you can dynamically load
from your application and use its functions.
R doesn't have a compiler, it's the interpreted language. 
However, it can parse a character string representing an expresstion and
transform it into the internal form, ready for evaluation.
