Yes - I realised that and was using spdiags, which is a lot quicker.

That's quite tricky... :)
It is a CSC matrix - not sure why, but I am saving and loading it from
Matlab files, and when I first started (a year or so again) it seemed
CSC was the most reliable (or at least I always got a CSC from .mat
Presumably the same thing the same thing will work though.

Thanks very much,
