Bug#649538: ITP: r-cran-int64 -- R package providing 64-bit integers
Package: wnpp
Owner: Dirk Eddelbuettel <>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name : r-cran-int64
Version : 1.0.0
Upstream Author : Romain Francois
* URL or Web page :
* License : GPL (>= 2)
Description : R package providing 64-bit integers

This is a new package (sponsored by Google's Open Source Office). It extends
R to support int64 types (modeled after int64_t and uint64_t) which permits
indexed objects of much larger size than with R's standard 32-bit sized

We need the package in Debian as Rcpp (== r-cran-rcpp) will require it
(upstream) in order to provide int64 support for things like RProtoBuf.

Romain (who wrote int64) is also my co-author for Rcpp, our joint package for
R / C++ integration (and which I maintain in Debian too).
