The inline package provides functionality to dynamically define R functions (and corresponding S4 objects) from in-line C, C++ or Fortran code. It supports the .C, .Call and .Fortran calling conventions.


The package was originally written while Oleg Sklyar was at EMBL-EBI. It was then extended by Dirk Eddelbuettel and Romain Francois for use by Rcpp. Years later, Karline Soetaert added support for Fortran. Johannes Ranke refactored some internals and added the ability to store and retrieve compiled code.
