I'm starting to develop an internal package for my company to use & see that at startup I can use either
rcpp: what's the difference between these two things (or four, since there are two sub-types of
rcppArmadillo)? are they just templates? or is this like the difference between learning base r and the tidyverse, where i'll start off with one thing and much later find out that the other was way easier and better for my purposes?
I'm by far the heaviest user of R on my team but am hoping that developing a package with good templates & things we use consistently would increase usage among others.
