Scilab help >> Elementary Functions > Elementary matrices > ind2sub


linear index to matrix subscript values

Calling Sequence

[i1,i2,..] =ind2sub(dims,I)
Mi = ind2sub(dims,I)



vector: the matrix dimensions


vector: the given linear index


the subscript values (same matrix shape as I)


matrix whose columns contains the subscript values.


ind2sub is used to determine the equivalent subscript values corresponding to a given single index into an array. [i1,i2,..] = ind2sub(dims,I) returns the arrays i1, i2, ... containing the equivalent row, column, ... subscripts corresponding to the index matrix I for a matrix of size dims. Mi=ind2sub(dims,I) returns a matrix Mi whose columns are the arrays i1(:), i2(:), ...
