Introducing sanitizers 0.1.0

August 3, 2014

(This article was first published on Thinking inside the box , and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

A new package sanitizers
is now on CRAN.
It provides test cases for Address Sanitizers, and Undefined Behaviour
Sanitizers. These are two recent features of both g++ and clang++, and
described in the
Checking Memory Access
section of the Writing R Extension manual.

I set up a new web page for the sanitizers package
which illustrates their use case via pre-built
Docker images, similar to what I
presented at the end of my useR! 2014 keynote a few weeks ago.

So instead of repeating this over here, I invite you to read the detailed
discussion on the sanitizers page.
