RTableCreate

create an rtable in external code

 Calling Sequence RTableCreate(kv, rts, pdata, bounds)

Parameters

 kv - kernel handle of type MKernelVector rts - pointer to an RTableSettings structure pdata - pointer to array data (optional) bounds - array of lower and upper bounds

Description

 • This function can be used in external code with OpenMaple or define_external.
 • RTableCreate creates a new rtable with the settings specified in rts.
 • If pdata is NULL, then a data block is allocated and initialized to rts->fill. When specifying a previously created block of data (that is, when pdata is not NULL), it is important that rts->foreign is set to TRUE. Size, storage, data_type, order, and indexing functions must all be considered when managing your data block. It is recommended that you let Maple create the data block, then use RTableDataBlock to create a pointer to it.
 • The array, bounds is a list of the lower and upper bounds for each dimension of the rtable.  For example, a MxN Matrix has bounds[0] = 1; bounds[1] = M; bounds[2] = 1; bounds[3] = N.
 Note: Matrix and Vector lower bounds must start at 1, not 0.

Examples

 #include "maplec.h" ALGEB M_DECL MyIdentity( MKernelVector kv, ALGEB *args ) { M_INT argc, n, i; RTableSettings rts; M_INT bounds[4]; ALGEB rt; INTEGER32 *data; argc = MapleNumArgs(kv,(ALGEB)args); if( argc != 1 ) { MapleRaiseError(kv,"one argument expected"); return( NULL ); } n = MapleToM_INT(kv,args[1]); RTableGetDefaults(kv,&rts); rts.num_dimensions = 2; rts.subtype = RTABLE_MATRIX; rts.data_type = RTABLE_INTEGER32; bounds[0] = 1; bounds[1] = n; bounds[2] = 1; bounds[3] = n; rt = RTableCreate(kv,&rts,NULL,bounds); data = (INTEGER32*)RTableDataBlock(kv,rt); for( i=1; i<=n; ++i ) { data[MATRIX_OFFSET_FORTRAN_RECT(i,i,n,n)] = 1; } return( rt ); }
