Convert complex scalar into F77

Calling Sequence

[res] = pvm_sci2f77(var)


var : local scilab variable. On return, the variable will be

overwritten with the result of conversion operation.


if the parameter var is not a variable, the result of the conversion is returned in res.


pvm_sci2f77 converts all the complex of a scilab variable (array, list...) in the F77 representation. MAy be useful if an application is sendind data to a non scilab application (direcvtly to a C or F77 program for example).

Note that the parameter is passed by adress. It means that if the parameter is a variable, this variable will be overwritten with the result of conversion operation. On the other case, if the parameter is not a variable, the result will be returned in res.


a = [1+%i, 2+2*%i,3+3*%i];
if norm(a - [1.+2* %i,1+3*%i, 2. + 3. *%i ]) >10*%eps then pause;end
