Bug 828

Summary: Confusing documentation of many SparseMatrixBase methods

Description Christoph Hertzberg 2014-06-23 23:35:06 UTC
The documentation of many SparseMatrixBase functions is shared with the corresponding dense functions -- including the code samples. That leads to some open questions, e.g., are block-expressions overwritable and are unaryExpressions called only for non-zeros?

Comment 2 Gael Guennebaud 2016-02-03 15:27:51 UTC
That's indeed an issue that has to be fixed asap. At last I clarified the manual pages for block-expressions:
Summary:     Clarify documentation on the restrictions of writable sparse block expressions.

Summary:     Bug 828: clarify documentation of SparseMatrixBase's unary methods.
Comment 4 Gael Guennebaud 2016-09-16 09:29:31 UTC
For blocks:

Should be good enough.
