Re: [eigen] Alignment issues

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Another frequent issue is a non-aligned stack when using, for instance, DLLs or multi-threading. In C++03, some member functions of the STL passed templated arguments by value instead of const reference, but I guess this has been fixed in C++11.

I myself often use EIGEN_DONT_ALIGN_STATICALLY when I don't care about ultimate performance. Alignment is still a pain.

In fact, code that you warn the user about in the documentation seems
to actually work in the same way:
class B {

     Vector4f a;

With the above, could you try:

#include <vector>
#include <iostream>

int main() {
     B* b = new B;
     B* b_arr = new B[10];
     std::vector<B> b_vec(10);

     std::cout << b << "\n" << b_arr << "\n" << << std::endl;

These are basically the things that used to get wrong. Maybe those have
been fixed by now, but they all fail on my gcc4.7 and clang3.1 on 32bit
gcc does not even like the alignas(16) syntax (clang accepts it, but it
does not influence the outcome).

Gael reported a bug related to that here:
The conclusion was that this is rather a bug in libstdc++ (still we need to work-around it)
