slice.index {base} | R Documentation |
Returns a matrix of integers indicating the number of their slice in a given array.
slice.index(x, MARGIN)
x |
an array. If |
MARGIN |
an integer vector giving the dimension numbers to slice by. |
If MARGIN
gives a single dimension, then all elements of slice
number i
with respect to this have value i
. In general,
slice numbers are obtained by numbering all combinations of indices in
the dimensions given by MARGIN
in column-major order. I.e.,
with m_1, ..., m_k the dimension numbers (elements of
MARGIN
) sliced by and d_{m_1}, ..., d_{m_k} the
corresponding extents, and n_1 = 1, n_2 = d_{m_1}, ...,
n_k = d_{m_1} … d_{m_{k-1}},
the number of the slice where dimension m_1 has value i_1,
..., dimension m_k has value i_k is
1 + n_1 (i_1 - 1) +
… + n_k (i_k - 1).
An integer array y
