permute

Rearrange dimensions of N-D array

Syntax

B = permute(A,order)

Description

B = permute(A,order) rearranges the dimensions of A so that they are in the order specified by the vector order. B has the same values of A but the order of the subscripts needed to access any particular element is rearranged as specified by order. All the elements of order must be unique, real, positive, integer values.

Examples

Given any matrix A, the statement

permute(A,[2 1]) 

is the same as A.'.

For example:

A = [1 2; 3 4]; permute(A,[2 1])
ans =
     1     3
     2     4

The following code permutes a three-dimensional array:

X = rand(12,13,14);
Y = permute(X,[2 3 1]);
size(Y)
ans =
    13    14    12

Tips

permute and ipermute are a generalization of transpose (.') for multidimensional arrays.
