dcopy {bigalgebra} R Documentation

## Copy a vector.

### Description

Copy double precision DX to double precision DY. For I = 0 to N-1, copy DX(LX+I*INCX) to DY(LY+I*INCY), where LX = 1 if INCX .GE. 0, else LX = 1+(1-N)*INCX, and LY is defined in a similar way using INCY.

### Usage

dcopy(N = NULL, X, INCX = 1, Y, INCY = 1)


### Arguments

 N number of elements in input vector(s) X double precision vector with N elements INCX storage spacing between elements of DX Y double precision vector with N elements INCY storage spacing between elements of DY

### Value

DY copy of vector DX (unchanged if N .LE. 0)

### Examples

## Not run:
set.seed(4669)
A = big.matrix(3, 2, type="double", init=1, dimnames=list(NULL,
c("alpha", "beta")), shared=FALSE)
B = big.matrix(3, 2, type="double", init=0, dimnames=list(NULL,
c("alpha", "beta")), shared=FALSE)

dcopy(X=A,Y=B)
A[,]-B[,]

# The big.matrix file backings will be deleted when garbage collected.
rm(A,B)
gc()

## End(Not run)
