MAfAllocMat
Routine

float **MAfAllocMat (int Nrow, int Ncol)
Purpose

Allocate a matrix of float values
Description
This routine allocates a matrix of float values. The returned value is
a pointer to an array of pointers to the rows of the matrix. The calling
routine can treat the returned value as a twodimensional matrix of float
values. Consider the invocation
float **A;
int Nrow, Ncol;
...
A = MAfAllocMat (Nrow, Ncol);
Then A[i][j] is a matrix of float values for 0 <= i < Nrow and
0 <= j < Ncol. The routine MAfAllocMat allocates an array of Nrow pointers
and a contiguous block of memory sufficient to hold the Nrow*Ncol float
values. Each pointer is initialized to point to a row of the matrix. A[0]
is a pointer to the first row (Ncol float values) (and to the full matrix of
Nrow*Ncol float values). A[1] points to the next row (Ncol elements beyond
A[0]), and so on.
The space allocated by this routine should be deallocated using the routine
MAfFreeMat.
Parameters

< float **MAfAllocMat

Returned pointer to array of row pointers

> int Nrow

Number of rows for the matrix

> int Ncol

Number of elements in each row (number of columns)
