[R] Link with C code

I am using cygwin (latest version) and I managed to generate a dll partly
with rcmd shlib although there was a problem with both the resouce file (I
had to remove "FILEOS VOS__WINDOWS32") and the command line for gcc
(--shared is not supported for instance).

So I would like to know which compiler/environment you advise to use for
windows OS.

Then I could load the library in R but couldn't call any method.

Is there a function to know which functions have been successfully imported

I've also done the dll in other ways (using gcc and dlltool as explained on
their website and also using VC++) but I had the same result.

I suppose I missed something in the dll creation but I cannot see what.

Any idea ?

Many thanks,

Patrick Wendel
