Description jazkkk 2015-03-13 01:36:31 UTC
This simple code crashes (on Xcode/MacOSX):

Eigen::SparseMatrix<float> sm(10, 10);

it crashes in XprHelper.h, line 53:
explicit variable_if_dynamic(T v) { EIGEN_ONLY_USED_FOR_DEBUG(v); assert(v == T(Value)); }

note that sm.col(0) works fine.

Indeed, patch coming soon. Meanwhile you can use sm.block(i,0,1,cols)
Comment 2 Christoph Hertzberg 2015-03-13 14:38:41 UTC
There appears to be a problem (only in 3.2) that SparseMatrix::row() will always be RowMajor, even if the original matrix is not. I guess Gael is quicker in resolving that.
If you do, could you please re-activate the out-commented unit-tests in sparse_basic?
