Re: [eigen] General questions about vectorization/alignment AGAIN

Hi guys,

Thanks a lot for you comments! That really sharpened my understanding of the
alignment issue.

I think it would be a good idea to mention in the documentation that
it is safe to use
Eigen::aligned_alloctor as a replacement for std::allocator if its
convenient (e.g. for
templated code) and that it doesn't hurt either to use

I agree fully agree with you! However, I think it would be good to warn
the users in the documentation that their might be an alignment issues
even though their code did not trigger any assert on their specific
I developed my code under Linux x86-64. I was (almost) completely
ignorant about alignment issues until I tried the code under Linux x86-32.

It would be even better, if we could force asserts or warnings even
under systems
such as Linux x86-64. Is this any possible? Otherwise, I bet most
Linux x86-64 and
Win64 users won't be aware of, that their Eigen code might be non-portable.
