My problem is not the dimension of the matrixes. 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++?
