attempt to apply non-function when using roxygenise(), can't find source of error


I'm trying to use add documentation to my arbitrary Rcpp package using roxygen2, and I keep getting the same error message

> roxygen2::roxygenise("anRpackage") First time using roxygen2. Upgrading automatically... Error in .f(.x[[i]], ...) : attempt to apply non-function In addition: Warning message: roxygen2 requires Encoding: UTF-8

I do not have ".f(.x[[i]])" anywhere in my source code, and I don't recognize the form ".f". Is this some kind of hidden function? How should I debug this error? I'm quite new to writing R packages, perhaps I'm missing something.... Thanks in advance!

library(Rcpp) library(RcppArmadillo) library(roxygen2) sessionInfo()

The output is the following:

This is not an answer but I want to record my failed attempt at reproducing the issue. Since I am using a more current version of R and have no windows environment available, I am using a docker container with your R version. Preperations

$ docker run --rm -it rocker/r-ver:3.4.2 bash # apt-get update # apt-get install libxml2-dev # install2.r -r https://cloud.r-project.org/ RcppArmadillo roxygen2

The only differences I am seeing are the OS and some not attached packages that are slightly newer in my docker container. Nothing that would explain the failure on your side.
