cytolib provides the c++ headers for users to use and interact with the GatingSet (the gated cytometry data structure) at c++ level.

The cytolib package is installed in the normal R manner without the need of any user efforts.

All packages wishing to use the libraries in cytolib only need to:

• add cytolib to LinkingTo field in DESCRIPTION file so that the compiler knows where to find the headers when user package is complied e.g.
LinkingTo: cytolib

See flowWorkspace package for the example of using cytolib.
