Certainly the limitation on the packeds array (< 2^31)limits, but my true problem is the slowness in to pass these matrixes to the form c++ by matlink. That that profit inserting pieces in c++, I lose in the transfers through matlink. I have to develop a form (structural fem) personalized for the analysis of parts mechanics submitted to dynamic solicitations and I was considering mathematica because I knew it from the university. If I use c++ and MTL for example it'is ok There is a method for move more quickly big matrixes (unfortunately the matrixes become full with the progress of the footsteps and it would be for me too complicated to avoid this to the beginning) from Mathematica to an external form in c++?
