A first follow-up to the initial announcement just days ago of the new crc32c package. The package offers cyclical checksum with parity in hardware-accelerated form on (recent enough) intel cpus as well as on arm64.
This follow-up was needed because I missed, when switching to a
default static library build, that newest compilers would
-fPIC was not set.
gcc-12 on my
box was happy,
gcc-13 on recent Fedora as used at CRAN was
not. A second error was assuming that saying
SystemRequirements: cmake would suffice. But hold on
whippersnapper: macOS always has a surprise for you! As
described at the end of the appropriate section in Writing R
Extensions, on that OS you have to go the basement, open
four cupboards, rearrange three shelves and then you get to use it. And
then in doing so (from an added
configure script) I failed
to realize Windows needed a fallback. Gee.
The NEWS entry for this (as well the initial release) follows.
