Sometimes the data arrays are so large, that one couldn’t’ copy its values to another array (i.e. into mglData). In this case, he can define its own class derived from
mglDataA (see mglDataA class) or can use
In last case, MathGL just save the link to an external data array, but not copy it. You should provide the existence of this data array for whole time during which MathGL can use it. Another point is that MathGL will automatically create new array if you’ll try to modify data values by any of
mglData functions. So, you should use only function with
const modifier if you want still using link to the original data array.
Creating the link is rather simple – just the same as using
double *a = new double; for(int i=0;i<50;i++) a[i] = sin(M_PI*i/49.); mglData y; y.Link(a,50);
