Dear list,
On a follow up from my previous email, I am now trying to allocate vectors
of length larger than 32-bit in C.
>From the R internals documentation, I read that:
"The sxpinfo header is defined as a 32-bit C structure..."
and
"A SEXPREC is a C structure containing the 32-bit header..."
The question is: does the INTSXP allow vectors larger than 32-bit?
A test example:
//###
int *p_temp;
SEXP root = PROTECT(allocVector(VECSXP, 5));
long long int verylargeinteger;
// something to compute verylargeinteger, > 32-bit
SEXP temp = SET_VECTOR_ELT(root, 0, allocVector(INTSXP, verylargeinteger));
p_temp = INTEGER(temp);
//###
"temp" should be a vector of length > 32-bit, and "p_temp" should be the
pointer to that vector.
If declaring:
long long int *p_temp;
(but the compiler throws a warning with an incompatible pointer type,
because pointers should be integers of course).
I've looked at all SEXPTYPEs in the R internals, and the only one specific
to integer vectors is INTSXP. Can this be used for vectors of length larger
than 32-bit?
Thank you again, in advance,
Adrian
