Subject [jira] Created: (MATH-289) SimplexTableau's arrayCopy could be wrong

SimplexTableau's arrayCopy could be wrong

                 Key: MATH-289
             Project: Commons Math
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.0
         Environment: Java 1.6.0_13 on Windows XP 32-bit 
            Reporter: Andrea
            Priority: Minor

The private method copyArray in file SimplexTableau at line 329 takes 3 parameters src, dest
and destPos but the last one is never used/read.

private void copyArray(final double[] src, final double[] dest, final int destPos) {
    System.arraycopy(src, 0, dest, getNumObjectiveFunctions(), src.length); 

The behavior of this method doesn't reflect its JavaDoc description, and "misleads" createTableau
at line 157 that passes 1 as destPos.

I don't think this leads to a wrong result, but the method signature/implementation is misleading
for a future reuse.

I suggest either to remove the destPos argument or use it in the method body.
