RInside… more info»
This directory provides a simple example of using RInside with the Qt toolkit---using a SVG renderer. Usage is standard Qt usage, do qmake to generate a Makefile from the qmake source file ending in .pro, followed by make which should generate the qtdensity binary. Doing make clean tidies things up. To generate SVG output, this version depends on the cairoDevice package for R which you may need to install. According to its author Michael Lawrence, there are two small issues. The first is that the SVG produced by cairoDevice is a littler richer than the subset which Qt can show. We address this by filtering the file before viewing it. The other is an apparent error in the clipping which we cannot do anything about---Michael considers it a rendering issue. All the help by Michael in getting the svg variant to roll is gratefully acknowledged.
