[Scilab-users] mtlb_sparse


Dear all,

Is the function mtlb_sparse still supported?

I try to run the example in the documentation

https://help.scilab.org/docs/6.0.2/en_US/mtlb_sparse.html

and I get an error:

Undefined variable: mtlb_sparse

Is there another way to generate a type 7 variable?

Regards,

Federico Miyara

This type is one of the misteries of Scilab.
May be it was created before that loadmatfile() and savematfile() were available.

Now that both of these functions exist, any required conversion of sparse matrix is automatically done through them.

IMHO this data type is obsolete and should be properly and completely removed, as you have also mentionned it in the Bugzilla thread.

Thanks for having put this topic on the public place.

Regards
Samuel
