mxGetJc (C and Fortran)

Sparse matrix JC array

C Syntax

#include "matrix.h"
mwIndex *mxGetJc(const mxArray *pm);

Fortran Syntax

mwPointer mxGetJc(pm)
mwPointer pm



Pointer to a sparse mxArray


Pointer to the first element in the jc array, if successful, and NULL in C (0 in Fortran) otherwise. Possible causes of failure include

  • Specifying a full (nonsparse) mxArray.

  • Specifying a value for pm that is NULL in C (0 in Fortran). This failure usually means that an earlier call to mxCreateSparse failed.


Use mxGetJc to obtain the starting address of the jc array. The jc array is an integer array having n+1 elements, where n is the number of columns in the sparse mxArray. The values in the jc array indirectly indicate columns containing nonzero elements. For a detailed explanation of the jc array, see mxSetJc.
