Hi Erin,
If you are just starting with including compiled code, I would highly
recommend the Rcpp + inline packages. I attached a small example of
how it works, but basically you get to inline C++ code in R files.
Cheers,
Josh
P.S. I wrote this snippet awhile ago when I did not know much about
C++ so that code is sloppy, but it demonstrates the point and I am
short on time right now.
