Reshapes a multi-dimensional array to another multi-dimensional array.
Available in version 6.1.0 and later.
function reshape ( val , dims : integer or long ) return_val [dims] : typeof(val)
A multi-dimensional array of any type.dims
A one-dimensional array of positive values that represent the desired output dimensionality.
This function converts any multi-dimensional array to another multi-dimensional array. If the product of the output dimension sizes is not equal to the number of elements in the input array, it will exit with a fatal error.
Metadata are not copied, except for the "_FillValue" attribute. To copy metadata, use copy_VarMeta.
Note: a bug was fixed in version 6.1.1 which caused this function to only allow numeric types. It will now handle other types, like strings.
x = random_uniform(-100,100,(/10,20,30/)) xreshape = reshape(x,(/200,30/))
Consider x(ntim,nlat,mlon), where the 'ntim' dumension contains monthly data for multiple years, starting in January. Let's say that you want to create a new array 'xjfm' that contains just January, February, March values.
nyears = ntim/12 x4d = reshape(x,(/nyears,12,nlat,nlon/)) xjfm = reshape(x4d(:,0:2,:,:),(/nyears*3,nlat,nlon/))
