Hello, I have just finished writing a new package for bioconductor that should work with Cuda and c++ code. The problem is that the package requires the installation of many development suites (cuda devtools, Rtools, MSVC compilations tools) under Windows and that the compilation time under Windows is important (15 minutes or more). I am afraid that this discourages many people. Also, I would like to be able to provide the Windows executables directly in the package... Under linux, the compilation seems to me unavoidable because of the risk of incompatibility with the libc library... Is it possible to indicate a compilation under linux and no compilation under windows in the DESCRIPTION file or should I make two different packages?
Thanks for your help!
As mentioned on slack as well: We have a standard way of building, installing, and compiling packages on our builder and exceptions to that are generally not allowed. package development questions are better asked on the Bioconductor developers forum by emailing the firstname.lastname@example.org.
