Double reading (Scilab gateway)

How to read matrices of double in a gateway.

Calling Sequence

Input argument profile:

SciErr getMatrixOfDouble(void* _pvCtx, int* _piAddress, int* _piRows, int* _piCols, double** _pdblReal)
SciErr getComplexMatrixOfDouble(void* _pvCtx, int* _piAddress, int* _piRows, int* _piCols, double** _pdblReal, double** _pdblImg)

Named variable profile:

SciErr readNamedMatrixOfDouble(void* _pvCtx, const char* _pstName, int* _piRows, int* _piCols, double* _pdblReal)
SciErr readNamedComplexMatrixOfDouble(void* _pvCtx, const char* _pstName, int* _piRows, int* _piCols, double* _pdblReal, double* _pdblImg)

Arguments

_pvCtx

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

_piAddress

Address of the Scilab variable.

_pstName

Name of the variable for "named" functions.

_piRows

Return number of rows.

_piCols

Return number of columns.

_pdblReal

Return address of real data array (size: _iCols * _iRows). For "Named" function, _pdblReal must be allocated before calling function.

_pdblImg
Return address of imaginary data array (size: _iCols * _iRows). For "Named" function, _pdblImg must be allocated before calling function.
SciErr

Error structure where is stored errors messages history and first error number.

Description

This help describes how matrix of doubles can be handled through the Scilab API.
