# resize_matrix

create a new matrix with a different size

### Calling Sequence

resMat = resize_matrix(mat,nbRow,nbCol,[typeOfMat])

### Arguments

- mat
input matrix from which the resized matrix will be created.

- nbRow
number of row of the resized matrix.

- nbCol
number of column of the resized matrix.

- typeOfMat
caracter string, type name of the resized matrix.

- resMat
resized matrix.

### Description

Create a matrix of size `nbRow`

x
`nbCol`

and whose elements `(i,j)`

are
`mat(i,j)`

if `(i,j)`

is in the range of
the input matrix. Otherwise elements `(i,j)`

are
`0`

for real or integer matrices, `%f`

for boolean matrices and an empty string for string matrices.

The type of the output matrix may be modified by specifying the
`typeOfMat`

argument. In this case, be sure that the
input matrix type is compatible with this one.

For now, only real, integer matrices, boolean and character string
matrices are supported. This means that `typeOfMat`

must
be chosen within: 'constant', 'boolean', 'string' or any integer type
('int8', 'int16',...).

### Examples

// number matrix myMat = 5 * rand( 3, 4 ) myMat = resize_matrix( myMat, 3, 3 ) // reduce the matrix size myMatInteger = resize_matrix( myMat, 4, 4, 'int32' ) // create a integer matrix myMatBoolean = resize_matrix( myMat, 2, 2, 'boolean' ) myMatBoolean = resize_matrix( myMatBoolean, 3, 5 ) // string matrix myMatString = ["Scilab","the";"Open Source","Scientific";"Software","Package"] myMatString = resize_matrix( myMatString, 3, 1 )
