Wei,
We are not trying to do anything but call SPARSEPAK. It is possible that we
have made an error here, which I will check. However,
I believe that RCM depends on the starting row, and perhaps Matlab is doing
some preprocessing here. Since we cannot see exactly
what algorithm is being used in Matlab, there is no way for us to verify or
match it. Perhaps you could send a small example which we
can verify explicitly what ordering Matlab is using. That way we could see
which row becomes 0.
Thanks,
Matt

What most experimenters take for granted before they begin their
experiments is infinitely more interesting than any results to which their
experiments lead.
