Description NumeRe 2015-11-14 20:55:21 UTC
If you try to compile Eigen together with some other library using the C99 complex standard (like MathGL, see here: weird messages/compilation errors appear.

We've spotted that it's related to the C99 complex standard defining "I" as an special constant for the imaginary unit. This interferes with the lines 112-129 in "/src/Core/solveTriangular.h". Renaming this variables probably fixes this problem.

Best regards,
