length (Matlab function)

Length of vector

Matlab/Scilab equivalent

Matlab Scilab
No equivalent

Particular cases

If A is a vector, Scilab equivalent for length(A) is size(A,"*").

If A is a matrix, Scilab equivalent for length(A) is max(size(A)).

If A contains character strings, String matrix has to be converted to a "character" string matrix using mstr2sci (Using asciimat to convert will give the same result).

Scilab length is different from Matlab length.
