A new video in both our T^4 series of video lightning talks with tips, tricks, tools, and toys is also a video in the R^4 series as it revisits a topic previously covered in the latter: how to (more easily) get (binary) packages onto your Ubuntu system. In fact, we show it in three different ways.
The slides are here.
This repo at GitHub support the series: use it to open issues for comments, criticism, suggestions, or feedback.
Peter Carbonetto let us know in issue #25 that the included example now showed linker errors on (everybody’s favourite CRAN platform) Slowlaris. Kidding aside, the added compiler variety really has benefits because we were indeed missing a good handful or two of
inline statements in the headers—which our good friends
clang++ apparently let us get away with. This has been fixed, and a little bit of the usual package polish and cleanup has been added; see the list of detailed changes below.
Changes in version 0.3.8 (2020-06-21)
A few missing
inlinestatements were added to the headers fixing a (genuine) error that was seen only on Solaris (Dirk).
colNormexample is now in a file by itself, the previous versions are off in a new file
The README.me now sports two new badges (Dirk).
Travis CI was updated to 'bionic' and R 4.0 (Dirk).
Special thanks also to CRAN for a super-smooth and fully automated processing of a package with both compiled code and two handful of reverse dependencies.
