Hi, R-users and developers!
I want to know if it is possible to modify some numeric precision on a
windows based machine.
I mean, .Machine() function give me some limits of precision based on my
machine and OS, but
I would like to know if I can modify those characteristics from R.
May I change some C++ library by other and recompile R?
Is it possible to use some specific processor characteristics?
I'm using R in a W2K O.S, and with an Intel PIII, machine.
Are those characteristics R better on a LINUX O.S. machine on the same
Is it better to use R in the LINUX platform than in W2K with regards
this machine precision?
Thank you very much for your help
