R - C/C++ Programming (Hands-on)

R code can be extended with C/C++ code, which in certain cases might significantly speed-up the execution time. In this tutorial you will learn various options for embedding C/C++ code into R scripts, namely .C() and .Call() interfaces. We will also examine the Rcpp package.

Prerequisite: This tutorial requires knowledge of both the R and C/C++ languages.
