Summary: Zero-sized blocks

Description Christoph Hertzberg 2013-10-29 13:32:58 UTC
Due to a runtime assert, it is currently not possible to extract fixed-sized blocks where one dimension is zero. (A use-case for that is to reduce trivial branches in user code).
The local fix is trivial, but for proper unit-tests some other parts require adaption as well.

hm, actually a workaround is:

MatrixXd m;
m.block<0,N>(i,j, 0,N);
