Hi Dirk,

yes I am familiar with new style (thank you for that, it makes things much 
prettier), but I still have to (or do I?...) use the as<>() when I am picking 
the pieces out of Rcpp::List 
(https://github.com/helske/bssm/blob/master/src/gssm.cpp):

....
gssm::gssm(const List model, unsigned int seed) :
  y(as<arma::vec>(model["y"])), Z(as<arma::mat>(model["Z"])),
 H(as<arma::vec>(model["H"])), T(as<arma::cube>(model["T"])), ...

I don't want to modify objects on the R side, so I had to use clone for the 
List model. I was just wondering why the behaviour is different for cube (tries 
to avoid a copy) than for vec/mat when using as<>() (always? forces a copy).

Jouni

as conversion

Oh, and it should work the same for cube types:

R> cppFunction("void test2(arma::cube & x) { x(0,0,0) = 0.5; }",
R> depends="RcppArmadillo")
R> v <- array(sqrt(1:8), c(2, 2, 2))
R> v

Proxy object that still connected to the outside object, unless a cast is
needed (int <-> double), or a copy is enforced (clone(), possibly via as<>()).
