Glad you like, and thanks for suggesting it in the first place.
After working the bugs out, it seemed clear that using the library
was a superior approach.
But there are two problems:
On my system the "Rsrc" file created for R contains two sink(<file>)
commands at the beginning of the file and just one sink() command at the
Oops, duplicating the "sink" call was a Windows-specific bug.
Now fixed in CVS and snapshot, I think.
A second problem is that sometimes R complaints that it cannot find
dlls. This seems to be well known to other users of libr already, see:
I added the R-bin directory to my path environment variable and now the
problem is gone. I don't know whether we should add a workaround for
this problem, but if not we should at least give a hint in a helpfile
Ah. Yes, we should do something about that. Maybe automatically
add the R-bin dir to the PATH if it's not already there. This is
a Windows-specific problem, I take it?
