Hello, We have release the first version of our R/protobuf binding to the central R repository: http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/RProtoBuf/index.html
The package uses protobuf reflection to dynamically load proto files and generate messages. As an example, here is how the quick example from the protobuf page translates to R : > require( RProtoBuf ) > readProtoFiles( "addressbook.proto" ) > bob <- new( tutorial.Person, + email = "b...@example.com", + name = "Bob", + id = 123 ) > writeLines( bob$toString() ) name: "Bob" id: 123 email: "b...@example.com" > bob$email  "b...@example.com" > bob$id <- 5 > bob$id  5 > serialize( bob, "person.pb" ) Complete documentation is available as part of our vignettes: > vignette( package = "RProtoBuf" ) which are also available from CRAN : http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/RProtoBuf/index.html Romain Francois and Dirk Eddelbuettel -- Romain Francois Professional R Enthusiast +33(0) 6 28 91 30 30 http://romainfrancois.blog.free.fr |- http://tr.im/KfKn : Rcpp 0.7.2 |- http://tr.im/JOlc : External pointers with Rcpp `- http://tr.im/JFqa : R Journal, Volume 1/2, December 2009 -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Protocol Buffers" group.
