R-devel SAN: R development binaries with Sanitizer support

The Writing R Extensions manual details in Section 4.3 how to check memory access. Two sections are devoted to Using the Address Sanitizer and to Using the Undefined Behaviour Sanitizer.

Both require a particularly instrumented binary of R. This repository provides a Docker container with such a binary, based on the R-devel sources.


This repository is part of Rocker-Org where Rocker -- Docker containers of interest for R users -- is being developed.

All this is work in progress; talk to @eddelbuettel and @cboettig about how to get involved.

Documentation is being added at the Rocker Wiki.
