Description Dennis Schridde 2011-10-31 13:40:40 UTC
It would be nice if Eigen::AlignedBox would have 3f,2f,... typedefs, like Eigen::Matrix has.

Want to make a patch? ;-) see how it's done in Matrix.h

Attached patch appears to work. Review it anyway, please.

Patch to Matrix typedefs

While creating attachment #226 [details] I came across a potential mistake in the Matrix typedefs.

Proposed patch

Review of attachment 226 [details]:

I do not use the Geometry module, but this patch seems very localized and thus safe. I have some questions on details (see the comments). I would also like to see a test; this could be as simple as changing test/geo_alignedbox to use the new typedef in some places.

Does AlignedBox work when Type is complex? I would think not; you need an ordering of the numbers.

@@ +398,5 @@

Is the EIGEN_USING_ALIGNED_TYPEDEFS macro needed? I assume the definitions were copied from Matrix.h. In the case of Matrix.h, the macros are used in the definition of USING_PART_OF_NAMESPACE_EIGEN in the Eigen2 era; you can still find that macro in Eigen2Support. However, I think this idea has been abandoned in Eigen3.

Incidentally, the EIGEN_USING_MATRIX_TYPEDEFS macro should perhaps be moved from Matrix.h to Eigen2Support.

Improved patch

Improved according to comment #4.
[Geometry/AlignedBox] New typedefs, like for Core/Matrix

Includes 1-4 and dynamic sized boxes for int, float and double type.
Also changes the tests to use these typedefs.

I added 1-dim boxes because the tests used them and removed the c* types.
Comment 7 Jitse Niesen 2011-11-16 15:35:10 UTC
I committed your patch (changeset 1c6393ab51e0). 

Thanks very much for your help.
