Description Christian Eisenacher 2012-11-30 00:59:49 UTC
Eigen/src/Core/Transpose.h:356: error: cast from type ‘const float*’ to type ‘float*’ casts away constness

    return (bool(blas_traits<OtherDerived>::IsTransposed) != DestIsTransposed) && (dest!=0 && dest==(Scalar*)extract_data(src));

Possible solution:
    return (bool(blas_traits<OtherDerived>::IsTransposed) != DestIsTransposed) && (dest!=0 && dest==const_cast<Scalar*>(extract_data(src)));
