GetRow returns Mat, clone or original data?

Are these two pieces of code equivalent? SDMat and BMat are the rows of the matrices SD and B. SDMat and BMat interact, thus changing the original SD and B matrices.

Old version

for(i = 0; i < __shape.nModes()+4; i++) { for(j = 0; j < __texture.nModes(); j++) { cvGetRow(SD, &SDMat, i); cvGetRow(B, &BMat, j); cvScaleAdd(&BMat, cvScalar(-cvmGet(V,i,j)), &SDMat, &SDMat); } }

New version.

for(i = 0; i < __shape.nModes()+4; i++) { for(j = 0; j < __texture.nModes(); j++) { SDMat = SD.row(i); BMat = B.row(j); cv::scaleAdd(BMat,<double>(i,j), SDMat, SDMat); } }

I think your two pieces of code are not the same: while cvGetRow(SD, &SDMat, i);cvGetRow(B, &BMat, j); statements copy row i of SD to SDMat and row j of B to BMat, the two statements SDMat = SD.row(i); BMat = B.row(j); do not. Method row(int) of the Mat class only return matrix header whose pointer data points to a specific row of original object, it does not make the copy as you want it to do (if you mean it).
