A first update for the recent RcppGetconf package for reading system configuration — not unlike
getconf from the libc library — is now out. Almost immediately after I tweeted / blogged asking for help with OS X builds, fellow Rcpp hacker Qiang Kou created a clever pull request allowing for exactly that. So now we cover two POSIX systems that matter most these days — Linux and OS X — but as there are more out there, please do try, test and send those pull requests.
We also added a new function
getConfig() retrieving a single (given) value complementing the earlier catch-all function
getAll(). You can find out more about RcppGetconf from the local RcppGetconf page and the GitHub repo.
Changes in this release are as follows:
Changes in inline version 0.0.2 (2016-08-01)
A new function
getConfigfor single values was added.
struct varsis now defined more portable allowing compilation on OS X (PR #1 by Qiang Kou).
