Matrix Type (Scilab gateway)

How to know if an argument or a variable is stored as a matrix.

Calling Sequence

Input argument profile:

int isVarMatrixType(void* _pvCtx, int* _piAddress)

Named variable profile:

int isNamedVarMatrixType(void* _pvCtx, const char *_pstName)

Arguments

_pvCtx

Scilab environment pointer, pass in "pvApiCtx" provided by api_scilab.h

_piAddress

Address of the variable

Returned value

1 if the variable is stored as matrix otherwise 0.

Description

This help describes how to know if a variable is stored as a matrix.

In some cases (exemple: list), a variable is not stored as a standard Scilab matrix. This function provides a way to handle both cases.
