public RetT Subarray(
	params BaseArray[] dims


Type: ILNumericsBaseArray
Range specification for arbitrary dimensions as vector of BaseArray.

Return Value

Type: RetT
New array with parts of this array as specified by dims.

IndexOutOfRangeException if the range provided in a specifier dims addresses a non existing element.
NotSupportedException if any of dims attempts to use an indexing feature which is not supported in the current ArrayStyle mode. For example, if dims[0] was provided as newaxis while being in ILNumericsV4 mode.

This method considers the given dimensional range specifiers to extract a subarray from this array. Both indexing styles: numpy and Matlab® indexing (ILNumericsV4) are supported. For such indexing features specific to one or the other style the current setting of ArrayStyle is considered. For example, in ILNumericsV4 array style (default) the last given dimension specifier may refer to elements inside merged, trailing, unspecified dimensions of this array (and not only inside this dimension) in the same manner as the 'linear indexing' feature known from Matlab®, Octave, ILNumerics version 4 et al.

For simple dimension specifiers dims the subarray creation is often optimized to be fast and efficient, often without requiring new memory for copying elements. Note, that the array returned may use the same element storage as this array in this case. Only when trying to modify either one of this array or the subarray a copy will be made. More complex subarray specifications may require iterating and copying addressed elements into new memory.

The setting MinNumberOfArrayDimensions (as controlled by ArrayStyle) is respected for the array returned.

This overload of Subarray() allows to define range specifiers for individual dimensions as a system array. It is convenient when subarrays are to be created without knowing the number of dimensions and the concrete range parameters in advance. It is not recommended for situations where high performance is crucial. Note, that individual BaseArray objects for each dimension addressed in dims can be used in exactly one call to Subarray(BaseArray) and are released in the function automatically. Thus, when calling Subarray(BaseArray) in loops make sure to recreate all dimension specifier prior to every call to Subarray(BaseArray).
