Hi Sean,
Here you go:

sparsematrix.txt = 

row, col ,val
0,0,.42
0,1,.28
0,2,.89
1,0,.83
1,1,.34
1,2,.42
2,0,.23
3,0,.42
3,1,.98
3,2,.88
4,0,.23
4,1,.36
4,2,.97

The vector is just the third column of the matrix which should give the trivial solution of [0,0,1]

This translates to this which is correct
There are zeros in the matrix (Not really sparse but just an example)
0.42  0.28  0.89  
0.83  0.34  0.42  
0.23  0.0   0.0   
0.42  0.98  0.88  
0.23  0.36  0.97  


Here is what I get for  the Q and R

Q: -0.21470961288429483  0.23590615093828807   0.6784910613691661

-0.21470961288429483  -0.23389547730301666  -0.11165321782745863  
R: -1.0712142642814275  -0.8347536340918976  -1.227672225670157  
0.0                  0.7662808691141717   0.7553315911660984  
0.0                  0.0                  0.7785210939368136  

When running this in matlab the numbers are the same but row 1 is the last row and the last row is interchanged with row 3

Rather than post a large section of code, please post a small example of the input matrix and its decomposition, to illustrate what you're saying is out of order.

I am getting the correct rows but they are out of order. Is this a bug or am
I doing something wrong?
