Re: [eigen] no matching function for call to 'abs(const float&)'

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Hi Numo,

You could try to see if abs() really supports floating point arguments in your system. For example if this small code

compiles fine then you shouldn’t have any issues compiling the Eigen code. The other option may be is to define a custom version of abs() in the namespace std.

And if it's not? Eigen cannot control what has been included before or after Eigen headers and I'm guessing your fix would break as soon as someone uses that code without including cmath first.
