getorders

Purpose

Returns a vector containing the size of the dimensions of an array, matrix, or other symbol. sss

Format

orders = getorders(a)
Parameters:a (N-dimensional array, matrix, sparse matrix, string or string array) – data
Returns:orders (Nx1 vector of orders) – the sizes of the dimensions of the array.

Examples

Example 1

// Allocate a 5x100x3 dimensional array with each element equal to 0.
a = arrayinit(5|100|3, 0);

// Find the size of the dimensions in 'a'
orders = getorders(a);

After the code above:

orders =   5
         100
           3

Example 2

// Create 121x4 random matrix
x = rndn(121, 4);

// Get the number of rows and columns of the matrix
dims = getorders(x);

After the above code, dims should equal:

121
  4
