The RInside package provides C++ classes that make it easier to embed R in C++ code -- on either Linux, OS X or Windows.

Embedding R is described first and foremost in the 'Writing R Extensions' manual in the core R sources. It describes how to embed R --- but it does not make for easy reading as there are many little details to take care of.

Viewed from another angle, this is one of the standard motivations for abstraction and embedding (of both the logic and the little details) in dedicated (C++) classes. Presto -- that is exactly what RInside does.

Consider this overly complicated 'hello, world' program in four lines, included as rinside_sample0.cpp in the sources. It provides an instance of an embedded R interpreter, an assignment and an evaluation in just a handful of lines:

// -*- mode: C++; c-indent-level: 4; c-basic-offset: 4;  tab-width: 8; -*-
// Simple example showing how to do the standard 'hello, world' using embedded R
// Copyright (C) 2009 Dirk Eddelbuettel
// Copyright (C) 2010 Dirk Eddelbuettel and Romain Francois
// GPL'ed

#include <RInside.h>                    // for the embedded R via RInside

int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {

    RInside R(argc, argv);              // create an embedded R instance

    R["txt"] = "Hello, world!\n";      // assign a char* (string) to 'txt'

    R.parseEvalQ("cat(txt)");           // eval the init string, ignoring any returns


While this example is contrived, real-world uses are in the (possibly repeated) calling of data preparation, scrubbing, pre- or post-processing in the context of a C++ program. So rather than writing the data you may have out to file, calling R, parsing results back in -- and worse, doing this over and over -- you can start R once, and pass data structures to it, call functions you may have preloaded and get condensed results back.

And thanks to the Rcpp package, integration is seamless.

Featured Application: Embedding with Qt

RInside owes its basic structure to littler, the first-ever R scripting front-end by Jeff Horner and Dirk Eddelbuettel. RInside, just like littler, owes a lot to the tricks Jeff learned about embedding R via his Rapache project. However, RInside is a fresh C++ version of these ideas.


Version 0.2.5 should build, install and run on just about any Linux and OS X system, and even on Windows machines that have the Rtools compiled by Duncan Murdoch as detailed in the The Windows Toolset appendix to the R Installation manual. Do not report an error if you fail to build this with another compiler as this is not supported. Note that to build the examples on Windows, you need to say make -f Makefile.win to explicitly selects its Makefile. RInside works particularly well with the Rcpp package for interfacing R and C++ and shown by the examples in the RInside distribution. In fact, it now depends on it too.


A total of fifteend complete examples are provided in the directory examples/standard, as well as three test programs that triggered earlier bugs. These can serve as simple examples for your own programs. After installation, just say make in the examples directory (and say make -f Makefile.win if on that other OS).

Other examples directories show the Qt and Wt examples, use with MPI, use with the Rcpp extension Armadillo and Eigen as well as using Boost for a multithreaded application.

All examples are self-contained and fully functional. Just say make in one of the example subdirectories.


The examples/ directory provides some working examples. Auto-generated html documentation is available as is the manual generated from the help files.


A local archive is available here; it also contains the Doxygen-generated documentation. There is also the CRAN page and git access is provided at the GitHub repo.


Questions regarding RInside should go to the rcpp-devel mailing list. This is a subscriber-only list, so you need to subscribe before posting.

        * inst/examples/standard/rinside_sample10.cpp: New example in
        response to r-devel question by Wayne Zhang

2011-01-20  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * src/RInside.cpp (initialize): Assign results of Rf_install to avoid
        any risk of garbage collection -- with thanks to Doug and Luke

2010-12-26  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * src/RInside.cpp (initialize): If Rcpp is requested, load it
        explicitly before we call autoload() for all R default packages
        (with thanks to Murray Stokely for the patch)

        * Changelog: Moved up from inst/ for easier C-x 4 a use

2010-08-06  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * Release 0.2.3

        * src/Makevars: Set emacs header for Makefile mode
        * src/Makevars.win: Set emacs header for Makefile mode

2010-07-09  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * inst/include/RInside.h: New argument to constructor to select
        loading of Rcpp
        * src/RInside.cpp: Idem, also load Rcpp more quietly

2010-07-05  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * inst/examples/standard/rinside_sample3.rcpp: Simpler with new Rcpp API
        * inst/examples/standard/rinside_sample4.rcpp: Idem

2010-06-16  Romain Francois 

        * inst/examples/standard/rinside_sample9.cpp: new example illustrating
        how to expose a C++ function to the embedded R

        * inst/examples/standard/rinside_module_sample0.cpp: new example illustrating
        how to use an Rcpp module from RInside

        * inst/include/*.h: moved the headers to include so that there is only one copy

        * inst/include/MemBuf.h: change from signature of add to use
        const std::string& instead of const char*

        * src/RInside.cpp: loading the Rcpp package

2010-04-21  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * src/MemBuf.cpp: Added #include  so that even Solaris sees
          strlen() -- with thanks to Brian Ripley

        * src/Makefile: Remove -Wall option which Solaris cc does not
          support -- with thanks to Brian Ripley

2010-04-05  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * src/RInside.cpp: Add #ifdef to Callback code to break on Windows

2010-03-26  Romain Francois 

        * src/RInside.h: the Proxy class is moved inside RInside and
          parseEval now returns a Proxy so that the proxy class does its job

        * inst/examples/standard/rinside_sample8.cpp: simplify the example to
          implicit use of the Proxy class

2010-03-25  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * src/RInside.h: New Proxy class with operator T() to borrow
          Rcpp's automatic wrappers
        * inst/examples/standard/rinside_sample8.cpp: Use Proxy()

2010-03-22  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * DESCRIPTION: Increase Version: to 0.2.2

        * .Rbuildignore: Added to exclude volatile Doxygen-generated docs
           from, zip-archives will be made available as for Rcpp

2010-03-20  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * R/RInsidePaths.R: Updated to current version of Rcpp's file (minus
          the cxx0x bits) in order to standardize linking options, with this
          we now default to static linking on OS X and Windows as Rcpp does.

        * src/RInside.cpp: Use explicit std::string() constructors for all
          text arguments inside throw() calls (to satisfy the Windows compiler)

2010-03-16  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * src/RInside.{h,cpp}: parseEval* function changed slightly so that
          SEXP parseEval(string) is now preferred, and it as well as
          void parseEvalQ(string) now throw exceptions; they call the
          non-throwing older int parseEval(string, SEXP). We changed the
          parseEvalQ from int to void which is more in-line with it purpose.
        * inst/examples/standard/rinside_sample{2,4,5}.cpp: Adapted
          accordingly, mostly by removing no-longer-needed error checking
          and exepction throw which has now move 'up' into RInside.cpp

2010-02-25  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * inst/examples/mpi/: Added two variants using the C++ API to MPI

2010-02-23  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * src/RInside.cpp: Add new parseEval() member function returning a SEXP
        * src/RInside.h: idem

        * src/inst/examples/standard/rinside_sample8.cpp: Show new parseEval()

2010-02-17  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * inst/examples/mpi/: Add examples contributed by Jianping Hua
        * inst/examples/: Update two existing examples to new Rcpp API

2010-02-12  Romain Francois 

        * src/MemBuf.h: MemBuf simplified using std::string

        * src/RInside.h: RInside gains an operator[](string) to allow
        treating the RInside instance as a proxy to the global environment
        so that we can do: RInside R; R["x"] = 10 ; All the actual work
        is done by the Rcpp::Environment class

2010-02-04  Romain Francois 

        * RInside::autoloads revisited with the new Rcpp api

        * RInside gains a default constructor to be used when there
        is no command line arguments

2010-01-28  Romain Francois 

        * src/RInside.{h,cpp}: Retire assign(vector> )
        because now this can be taken care of by template specialization

        * DESCRIPTION: require Rcpp

2010-01-28  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * src/RInside.{h,cpp}: Restore assign(vector>) which
          is not (yet?) covered by the more general templated solution

        * src/RInside.h: Minor cleanup regarding logTxt usage

        * src/Makefile: Make sure we find Rcpp.h headers

2010-01-27  Romain Francois 

        * src/RInside.{h,cpp}: include Rcpp.h and use the Rf_ prefixed R API
        functions. stop using macros from Rdefines because they don't
        work with R_NOREMAP

        * src/RInside.{h,cpp}: using the new Rcpp API assign becomes
        a template and let Rcpp::Environment.assign deal with the type
        of the object and how to wrap it. specializations of wrap
        for vector> and vector> are created
        to maintain original interface.

2010-01-06  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * DESCRIPTION: Increase Version: to 0.2.1

        * src/RInside.cpp: Change startup so that interactive() comes out FALSE,
          with that no longer call Rf_KillAllDevices(); as we may not have
          had devices in the first place.

        * src/RInside.h: Logging helper protected by #ifndef as it is in Rcpp too

        * tools/unix2dos.r: Simple CRLF -> LF filter to nuke a Windows warning

2009-12-20  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * DESCRIPTION: Increase Version: to 0.2.0

        * src/setenv: Another small cleanup
        * inst/THANKS: Added Richard for all the initial help with Windows

        * src/RInside.cpp: Uncommented fpu_setup() for now

        * inst/doc/{html,man.latex}: Removed autogenerated doxygen files from
          svn as they are too volatile, will remain in tarball as for Rcppccd

2009-12-16  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * src/tools/RInsideEnvVars.r: Deal with slashed on Windows platform

2009-12-15  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * DESCRIPTION: Remove 'OS_type: unix' as we now build and run on Windoze

        * inst/examples/Makefile.win: Similarly Makefile for Windows examples

2009-12-12  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * src/RInside.cpp: Destructor does a few additional things as per the
          R_Cleanup example in section 8.1.2 on 'Setting R callbacks'
        * src/RIinside.h: Added simple logTxt() to log if defined and not otherwise.

2009-10-01  Dirk Eddelbuettel

        * inst/THANKS: Added new file to say Thank You! to contributors

        * inst/examples/Makefile: set R_HOME variable to output of 'R RHOME',
          use R_HOME to call R as R_HOME/bin/R, use R instead of Rscript,
          query R about CXX and CPPFLAGS, general editing and overhaul

        * inst/examples/*.cpp: More consistent formatting using Emacs 'M-x untabify'

        * src/Makefile: use $R_HOME/bin/R as per Kurt's reminder

2009-09-11  Dirk Eddelbuettel  

        * src/Makefile: Enhanced to now automatically regenerate the two
          R-derived header files, and to also query R for directories which
          should make the build more portable across different systems

        * src/MemBuf/cpp: Switch error message from fprintf to std::cerr
          to avoid unncessary trouble with g++-4.4, with thanks to
          Michael Kane for the heads-up
