# cumsum

cumulative sum of array elements

### Calling Sequence

y=cumsum(x)

y=cumsum(x,orientation)

y=cumsum(x,outtype)

y=cumsum(x,orientation,outtype)

### Arguments

- x
an array of reals, complex, booleans, polynomials or rational fractions.

- orientation
This argument can be

either a string with possible values

`"*"`

,`"r"`

,`"c"`

or`"m"`

or a number with positive integer value

- outtype
a string with possible values

`"native"`

or`"double"`

.- y
scalar or array

### Description

For an array `x`

, `y=cumsum(x)`

returns in the scalar `y`

the cumulative sum of all the elements of `x`

.

`y=cumsum(x,orientation)`

returns in `y`

the cumulative sum of `x`

along the dimension given by `orientation`

:

if

`orientation`

is equal to 1 or "r" then:or

if

`orientation`

is equal to 2 or "c" then:or

if

`orientation`

is equal to n then:`y=cumsum(x,"*")`

is equivalent to`y=cumsum(x)`

`y=cumsum(x,"m")`

is equivalent to`y=cumsum(x,orientation)`

where`orientation`

is the index of the first dimension of`x`

that is greater than 1. This option is used for Matlab compatibility.

The `outtype`

argument rules the way the summation is done:

For arrays of floats, of polynomials, of rational fractions, the evaluation is always done using floating points computations. The

`"double"`

or`"native"`

options are equivalent.For arrays of integers,

if

`outtype="native"`

the evaluation is done using integer computations (modulo 2^b, where b is the number of bits used),if

`outtype="double"`

the evaluation is done using floating point computations.The default value is

`outtype="native"`

.For arrays of booleans,

if

`outtype="native"`

the evaluation is done using boolean computations ( + is replaced by |),if

`outtype="double"`

the evaluation is done using floating point computations (%t values are replaced by 1 and %f values by 0).The default value is

`outtype="double"`

.

### Remark

This function applies, with identical rules to sparse matrices and hypermatrices.
