RcppFastFloat 0.0.3: Maintenance

The third release of RcppFastFloat arrived on CRAN. The package wraps fastfloat, another nice library by Daniel Lemire. For details, see the recent arXiv paper showing that one can convert character representations of ‘numbers’ into floating point at rates at or exceeding one gigabyte per second.

This release deals with a header include on everybody’s favourite CRAN platform bringing the result status to a clean suite of all OKs.

Changes in version 0.0.3 (2021-08-21)

  • Account for SunOS with an additional #define

  • Minor update to DESCRIPTION

Courtesy of my CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for this release.
