[R] tried half-precision but "size 2 is unknown on this machine"

It's an IEEE standard format:
This is what I see:
> writeBin(vec , con, size=2 )
Error in writeBin(vec, con, size = 2) : size 2 is unknown on this machine
I'm not sure what the machine has to do with it. It's really up to the
software, isn't it?
Is there a way to get R to read/write half-precision numbers (binary16)?
It isn't a big deal for me because unsigned 16-bit integers are working
well enough, but I'd like to have an answer for people who ask why I make
them divide by 1000 all the time. ;-)
