Re: [eigen] update

First of all: I forgot to mention, but thought it was obvious, that this is 
all committed, so you can check it out at /branches/work/eigen2 as usual. 
With only 714 lines of code it _can't_ be that difficult to get acquainted

Yes, and first and foremost, we must now unroll loops. I'll look into this 
soon, probably using template metaprograms. By the way, if anyone feels he 
can help with that, that's welcome!

Ok, I made an example, see attached file.

Each type has static const int members RowsAtCompileTime and 
ColsAtCompileTime, initialized in the body of the class. Here's as an example 
the MatrixProduct class:

    static const int RowsAtCompileTime = Lhs::RowsAtCompileTime,
                     ColsAtCompileTime = Rhs::ColsAtCompileTime;

Ultimately, this is set in the Matrix class to be the template parameters 
_Rows and _Cols of Matrix.

In case of dynamic-size, this equals the DynamicSize enum constant, which 
is -1.

Well, I can only encourage you to check out the source code :)

using namespace std;
using namespace Eigen;

template<typename Scalar, typename Derived>
void foo(const EigenBase<Scalar, Derived>& m)
	cout << "Here's m:" << endl << m << endl;

template<typename Scalar, typename Derived>
twice(const EigenBase<Scalar, Derived>& m)
	// note that the static_cast here will soon be unnecessary
	// but currently it is required.
	return static_cast<Scalar>(2) * m;

int main(int argc, char**argv)
	Matrix2d m;
	m(0,0)= 1;
	m(1,0)= 2;
	m(0,1)= 3;
	m(1,1)= 4;
	return 0;
