R Type Provider


Namespace: RProvider.Internal

Interface that is used for communication between the R provider server (RProvider.Server.exe) which communicates with R and the client that runs in the host IDE process (Visual Studio, Xamarin Studio etc.)

NOTE: In order to support standalone compilation of RProvider.Server.exe (which inlines the F# Core library), the interface does not expose any F# Core types.
