If feasible, please consider permitting NoChange as an argument in either the rows or cols slots within the following methods:
x.setConstant(rows, cols, value);
That is, the LHS and RHS of the following equalities would behave identically:
x.setZero(NoChange, cols) "==" x.setZero(x.rows(), cols)
x.setZero(rows, NoChange) "==" x.setZero(rows, x.cols())
x.setOnes(NoChange, cols) "==" x.setOnes(x.rows(), cols)
x.setOnes(rows, NoChange) "==" x.setOnes(rows, x.cols())
x.setConstant(NoChange, cols, value) "==" x.setConstant(x.rows(), cols, value)
x.setConstant(rows, NoChange, value) "==" x.setConstant(rows, x.cols(), value)
x.setRandom(NoChange, cols) "==" x.setRandom(x.rows(), cols)
x.setRandom(rows, NoChange) "==" x.setRandom(rows, x.cols())
These would be handy when "x" is complicated to express. Feel free to close as irrelevant if I'm missing some portion of the API that handles this succinctly.
This should not be difficult to add, and a welcome addition for consistency. Patch welcome.
In the meantime you can do:
X.resize(NoChange, cols); X.setConstant(2);
which is not much more verbose.
Not critical, but good junior-job. So let's keep it for newcomers.
