LINK {utils}R Documentation

Create Executable Programs


Front-end for creating executable programs.


R CMD LINK [options] linkcmd


linkcmd a list of commands to link together suitable object files (include library objects) to create the executable program.
options further options to control the linking, or for obtaining information about usage and version.


The linker front-end is useful in particular when linking against the R shared library, in which case linkcmd must contain -lR but need not specify its library path.

Currently only works if the C compiler is used for linking, and no C++ code is used.

Use R CMD LINK --help for more usage information.


Some binary distributions of R have LINK in a separate bundle, e.g. an R-devel RPM.
