mxSetM (Fortran)

Set number of rows in mxArray

Fortran Syntax

#include "fintrf.h"
subroutine mxSetM(pm, m)
mwPointer pm
mwSize m


mxSetM sets the number of rows in the specified mxArray. The term rows means the first dimension of an mxArray, regardless of the number of dimensions. Call mxSetN to set the number of columns.

You typically use mxSetM to change the shape of an existing mxArray. The mxSetM function does not allocate or deallocate any space for the pr, pi, ir, or jc arrays. So, if your calls to mxSetM and mxSetN increase the number of elements in the mxArray, then enlarge the pr, pi, ir, and/or jc arrays. Call mxRealloc to enlarge them.

If calling mxSetM and mxSetN reduces the number of elements in the mxArray, then you might want to reduce the sizes of the pr, pi, ir, and/or jc arrays to use heap space more efficiently. However, reducing the size is not mandatory.

Input Arguments

Pointer to an mxArray array, specified as mwPointer.

Number of rows, specified as mwSize.
