The inline package facilitates writing code in-line in simple string expressions or short files. The package is mature and in maintenance mode: Rcpp used it greatly for several years but then moved on to Rcpp Attributes so we have a much limited need for extensions to inline.

But we now have a new inline version 0.3.14. It brings both a few minor code updates since the last release in 2013, but also new extensions to both support Fortran better (for several flavours including f95) and to make working with dynamic library files easier. These were contributed by long-time R author Karline Soetaert who thereby became a package co-author. Also, the package moved to GitHub sometime last year and now lives in this repo.

See below for a detailed list of changes extracted from the NEWS file.

Changes in inline version 0.3.14 (2015-04-11)

  • Removed call to Rcpp::RcppLdFlags() which is no longer needed

  • With move of repository to GitHub, added a .travis.yml file and corresponding entry in .Rbuildignore

  • Replaced calls to require() with calls to requireNamespace(); also updated one call

  • Much improved support for Fortran and Fortran95 thanks to Karline Soetaert who became a package co-author

  • New helper functions writeDynLib and readDynLib as well as new methods print and code (also by Karline)

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is a comparison to the previous release.
