Copying is fine. Can you show how to do it in a single operation using a constructor?

Can you clarify, do you want to create a Matrix to wrap your existing
buffer, such that no data is copied? Or do you want a constructor that
copies the entire array from your buffer into the new Matrix in a single

The former is not possible, Octave's array classes own their memory
representation and do not offer a way to wrap an Octave array around an
existing C++ array.

The latter is possible if you have an STL container like a std::array or
a std::vector.

Do you have your code hosted somewhere publically so we can help you
with more direct references?
