Using Compiled Code

Part of the Statistics and Computing book series (SCO)


A very important and powerful feature of the S environment is that it is not restricted to functions written in the S language but may load and use compiled routines written in C or Fortran, or perhaps other languages.1 Moreover there are ways in which such externally written and compiled routines may communicate with the S session and make use of S functions and objects. In the new S engine and in R it is possible to manipulate S objects in C through the. Call interface.
