Data Structures: Part One

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel
Part of the Use R! book series (USE R, volume 64)


This chapter first discusses the RObject class at the heart of the Rcpp class system. While RObject is not meant to be used directly, it provides the foundation upon which many important and frequently-used classes are built. We then introduce the two core vector types NumericVector and IntegerVector. Other related vector types are briefly discussed at the end of the chapter.
