Re: [eigen] Best practices for accessing named regions within a larger array?

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

I see, here is a suggestion with a single get function templates by a
type encoding the required information and a little macro to the
definition of the names and their order:

  struct NIL { enum { ncols = 0, offset = 0 }; };

  struct NAME { enum { ncols = NCOLS, offset = PREV::ncols + PREV::offset }; };

  ADD_ENTRY(rho,  1, NIL);
  ADD_ENTRY(rhou, 3, rho);
  // etc.

  template<tyepname T>
  storage_type::NColsBlockXpr<T::ncols>::Type get()
  { return storage.middleCols<T::ncols>(T::offset); }
