Consider the following code:
auto eye = MatrixXd::Identity(n, n);
auto subeye_view = eye(irows, icols); // this compiles
MatrixXd subeye_matrix = eye(irows, icols); // this DOES NOT compile
where `irows` and `icols` are some collection of indices.
Please allow VectorXx and MatrixXx objects to be constructed from indexed views of vector and matrix expressions such as VectorXd::Ones, VectorXd::Zero, MatrixXd::Identity, etc.
If the indices irows and icols are of type VectorXi, then the following can be seen in the output from g++:
Eigen/src/Core/CoreEvaluators.h:512:19: note: candidate template ignored: deduced conflicting types for parameter 'IndexType' ('int' vs. 'long')
CoeffReturnType coeff(IndexType row, IndexType col) const
After this, I decided to change the integer type of the indices from int to long. By having irows and icols of type:
Eigen::Matrix<long, Eigen::Dynamic, 1>
this fixed the compilation error.
Thus, something in Eigen needs to be changed to support other integer types, and not only long. Hopefully this is something simple to do.
