Re: FloatSet(MathType type)

I'd be interested to see the code that didn't work, and
whatever compile errors or Exceptions or bad behavior it

If the domain of your FlatField is n-dimensional and its
samples lie on an integer lattice (i.e., with size
N1 x N2 x ... Nn), and if the values in the FlatField are
tuples (i.e., records) with m fields, then the code might
look like this:

  RealType[] domain_types = {domain1, domain2, ..., domainn};
  RealTupleType domain_type = new RealTupleType(domain_types);
  RealType[] range_types = {range1, range2, ..., rangem};
  RealTupleType range_type  = new RealTupleType(range_types);
  FunctionType field_type = new FunctionType(domain_type, range_type);
  int[] lengths = {N1, N2, ..., Nn};
  IntegerNDSet domain_set = new IntegerNDSet(domain_type, lenghts);
  FlatField field = new FlatField(field_type, domain_set);
  int N = N1 * N2 * ... * Nn;
  float[][] values = new float[m][N];
  values = ... // set values
  field.setSamples(values, false); // don't copy

This will use FloatSets for the range values.  If you want
range values to be doubles, then after 'domain_set = ...'
if should be:

  DoubleSet[] range_sets = new DoubleSet[m];
  for (int i=0; i<m; i++) range_sets[i] = new DoubleSet();
  FlatField field = new FlatField(field_type, domain_set, null,
                                  null, range_sets, null);
  int N = N1 * N2 * ... * Nn;
  double[][] values = new double[m][N];
  values = ... // set values
  field.setSamples(values, false); // don't copy

Please let me mnow if this is still a problem.

I meant to do a source update this week, but was really
swamped and didn't have time to run the tests.  Hopefully
early next week.
