Class RealVectorFormat

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.commons.math3.linear.RealVectorFormat

public class RealVectorFormat
extends Object

Formats a vector in components list format "{v0; v1; ...; vk-1}".

The prefix and suffix "{" and "}" and the separator "; " can be replaced by any user-defined strings. The number format for components can be configured.

White space is ignored at parse time, even if it is in the prefix, suffix or separator specifications. So even if the default separator does include a space character that is used at format time, both input string "{1;1;1}" and " { 1 ; 1 ; 1 } " will be parsed without error and the same vector will be returned. In the second case, however, the parse position after parsing will be just after the closing curly brace, i.e. just before the trailing space.

Constructor Detail

RealVectorFormat

public RealVectorFormat()
Create an instance with default settings.

The instance uses the default prefix, suffix and separator: "{", "}", and "; " and the default number format for components.


RealVectorFormat

public RealVectorFormat(NumberFormat format)
Create an instance with a custom number format for components.

Parameters:
format - the custom format for components.

RealVectorFormat

public RealVectorFormat(String prefix,
                        String suffix,
                        String separator)
Create an instance with custom prefix, suffix and separator.

Parameters:
prefix - prefix to use instead of the default "{"
suffix - suffix to use instead of the default "}"
separator - separator to use instead of the default "; "

RealVectorFormat

public RealVectorFormat(String prefix,
                        String suffix,
                        String separator,
                        NumberFormat format)

This is the same set as the NumberFormat set.

Returns:
available real vector format locales.

getPrefix

public String getPrefix()
Get the format prefix.

Returns:
format prefix.

getSuffix

public String getSuffix()
Get the format suffix.

Returns:
format suffix.

getSeparator

public String getSeparator()
Get the format separator between components.

Returns:
format separator.

getFormat

public NumberFormat getFormat()
Get the components format.

Returns:
components format.

getInstance

public static RealVectorFormat getInstance()
Returns the default real vector format for the current locale.

Returns:
the default real vector format.

getInstance

public static RealVectorFormat getInstance(Locale locale)
Returns the default real vector format for the given locale.

Parameters:
locale - the specific locale used by the format.
Returns:
the real vector format specific to the given locale.

format

public String format(RealVector v)
This method calls format(RealVector,StringBuffer,FieldPosition).

Parameters:
v - RealVector object to format.
Returns:
a formatted vector.

format

public StringBuffer format(RealVector vector,
                           StringBuffer toAppendTo,
                           FieldPosition pos)
Formats a RealVector object to produce a string.

Parameters:
vector - the object to format.
toAppendTo - where the text is to be appended
pos - On input: an alignment field, if desired. On output: the offsets of the alignment field
Returns:
the value passed in as toAppendTo.

parse

public ArrayRealVector parse(String source)
Parse a string to produce a RealVector object.

Parameters:
source - String to parse.
Returns:
the parsed RealVector object.
Throws:
MathParseException - if the beginning of the specified string cannot be parsed.

parse

public ArrayRealVector parse(String source,
                             ParsePosition pos)
