 AssertionError

i have this piece of code:

MAT=[1 0;0 2]
n=count(!iszero,MAT)
n0=MAT[1:n]
@assert n0 == ones(n)

i ran into an unexpected assertion error for this part, apparently @assertdidn’t evaluate the assert code line for some reason, and i’m getting for this part:

AssertionError: n0 == ones(n)

Stacktrace:
 top-level scope at In:4

Try

MAT=[1 0;0 2]
n=count(!iszero,MAT)
n0=MAT[1:n]
@show n0
@show ones(n)
@assert n0 == ones(n)

your two things aren’t ==, @assert for sure does evaluate before comparison:

julia> @assert [1,1,1] == ones(2)
ERROR: AssertionError: [1, 1, 1] == ones(2)
Stacktrace:
 top-level scope at REPL:1

julia> @assert [1,1,1] == ones(3)

still got the same assertion error:

n0 = [1, 0]
ones(n) = [1.0, 1.0]

AssertionError: n0 == ones(n)

Stacktrace:
 top-level scope at In:6

Of course it still throws the same assertion error. The @show statements are only there to make it easier to see why the assertion fails. (Look at the last element of each vector.)

yes the last element of the two vectors are differents, then how can i make the vector==ones(r)in this case??

You will need to rethink how you compute n. If this is a homework assignment, then read the text very carefully. Right now you compute n to be the number of nonzeros in all of MAT. Was this what you were asked to do? Maybe the task was to count only at the beginning of MAT?

it’s not a homework actually it’s a piece of code from a big code where i’m having problems with, and yes n is the number of nonzeros in all of MAT , after computing n0 i want to make it as ones(n)

What do you mean by “it” in this sentence? Do you want to modify the first n elements of MAT? Here’s how to do that:

julia> MAT[1:n] .= 1;

julia> MAT
2×2 Array{Int64,2}:
1  0
1  2

i mean want to make n0 equals to ones(n)

n0== ones(n)

Oh. I see. That can be done with:

n0 = ones(n)

after which you can try

n0 == ones(n) # returns `true`
