Bug#479233: ITP: r-base-core-ra -- Ra patch for just-in-time compilation of R code

Package: wnpp
Owner: Dirk Eddelbuettel <edd@debian.org>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : r-base-core-ra
  Version         : 1.0.9
  Upstream Author : Stephen Milborrow
* URL or Web page : http://www.milbo.users.sonic.net/ra
* License         : GPL
  Description     : Ra patch for just-in-time compilation of R code

This is packaged as well. It need's Stephen 'jit' package which entered
Debian unstable earlier today as r-cran-jit.  See the URL above for details.

I packaged this as a plain alternative to R with a completely distinct
directory /usr/lib/Ra/ and just two binaries /usr/bin/R and
/usr/bin/Rscript.Ra provided the 'Ra' versions of R and Rscript.

Tentative debian/control below.

Cheers, Dirk

Description: 'ra' variant of GNU R core of statistical computing language and environment
 R is `GNU S' - A language and environment for statistical computing
 and graphics. R is similar to the award-winning S system, which was
 developed at Bell Laboratories by John Chambers et al. It provides a
 wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques (linear and
 nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis,
 classification, clustering, ...).
 R is designed as a true computer language with control-flow
 constructions for iteration and alternation, and it allows users to
 add additional functionality by defining new functions. For
 computationally intensive tasks, C, C++ and Fortran code can be
 linked and called at run time.
 S is the statistician's Matlab and R is to S what Octave is to Matlab.
 This package provides a patched version of GNU R with 'just-in-time'
 compilation of R code using the 'jit' package (in r-cran-jit). See
 http://www.milbo.users.sonic.net/ra for details.
