The first, as, is used to convert the incoming argument xs from SEXP to integer. Call(). 4 Using Inline The next steps are to compile these two functions, to link them into a so-called shared library (which can be loaded at run-time by a system such as R), and to actually load it. These three steps do sound a little tedious and labor-intensive, and they are. So it is at this point that we introduce another very powerful helper: the inline package (Sklyar et al. 2012). inline, written mostly by Oleg Sklyar, brings an idea to R which has been used with other dynamically extensible scripting languages.

Few languages besides R are this expressive and powerful for working with data. A key aspect of the internal implementation of R is that its own core interpreter and extension mechanism are implemented in the C language. C is often used for system programming as it is reasonably lean and fast, yet also very portable and easily available on most hardware platforms. A key advantage of C is that it is extensible via external libraries and modules. R takes full advantage of this, and so does the Rcpp extension featured in this book.

10 Fibonacci number in C++ via memoization We define a very simple C++ class Fib with three elements: • A constructor which is called once upon initialization. • A single public member function which computes Fn . • A private data vector holding the memoization values. So this example provides a first glance at using classes in C++ code. In the actual wrapper function, we simply instantiate an object f of the class Fib and then invoke the member function to compute the given Fibonacci number. 8 A Third R Solution Naturally, we can also compute Fn using an iterative approach.
