A numeric array class for representing a BLAS-like slice from a valarray


#include <valarray>

namespace std {
  template <class T>
  class slice_array;


The valarray helper class slice_array gives a slice view into a valarray. A slice_array is only produced by applying the slice subscript operator to a valarray. The elements in a slice_array are references to selected elements in the valarray (so changing an element in the slice_array really changes the corresponding element in the valarray). A slice_array does not itself hold any distinct elements. The template cannot be instantiated directly since all its constructors are private. However, you can easily copy a slice_array to a valarray using either the valarray copy constructor or the assignment operator. Reference semantics are lost at that point.



slice_array(const slice_array&);

Assignment Operators

void operator^=(const valarray<T>& val) const;
void operator&=(const valarray<T>& val) const;
void operator|=(const valarray<T>& val) const;
