flip

Flip order of elements

Syntax

Description

example

B = flip(A) returns array B the same size as A, but with the order of the elements reversed. The dimension that is reordered in B depends on the shape of A:

  • If A is vector, then flip(A) reverses the order of the elements along the length of the vector.

  • If A is a matrix, then flip(A) reverses the elements in each column.

  • If A is an N-D array, then flip(A) operates on the first dimension of A in which the size value is not 1.

example

B = flip(A,dim) reverses the order of the elements in A along dimension dim. For example, if A is a matrix, then flip(A,1) reverses the elements in each column, and flip(A,2) reverses the elements in each row.

Examples

expand all

Flip String of Characters

A = 'no word, no bond, row on.';
B = flip(A)
B =

.no wor ,dnob on ,drow on

Flip Column Vector

A = [1;2;3];
B = flip(A)
B =

     3
     2
     1

Flip Matrix

Create a diagonal matrix, A.

A = diag([100 200 300])
A =

   100     0     0
     0   200     0
     0     0   300

Flip A without specifying the dim argument.

B = flip(A)
B =

     0     0   300
     0   200     0
   100     0     0

Now, flip A along the second dimension.

B = flip(A,2)
B =

     0     0   100
     0   200     0
   300     0     0

Flip N-D Array

Create a 1-by-3-by-2 array.

A = zeros(1,3,2);
A(:,:,1) = [1 2 3];
A(:,:,2) = [4 5 6];
A
A(:,:,1) =

     1     2     3


A(:,:,2) =

     4     5     6

Flip A without specifying the dim argument.

B = flip(A)
B(:,:,1) =

     3     2     1


B(:,:,2) =

     6     5     4

Now, flip A along the third dimension.

B = flip(A,3)
B(:,:,1) =

     4     5     6


B(:,:,2) =

     1     2     3

Flip Cell Array

Create a 3-by-2 cell array.

A = {'foo',1000; 999,true; 'aaa','bbb'}
A = 

    'foo'    [1000]
    [999]    [   1]
    'aaa'    'bbb' 

Flip A without specifying the dim argument.

B = flip(A)
B = 

    'aaa'    'bbb' 
    [999]    [   1]
    'foo'    [1000] 

Now, flip A along the second dimension.

B = flip(A,2)
B = 

    [1000]    'foo'
    [   1]    [999]
    'bbb'     'aaa'

Input Arguments

expand all

A — Input arrayvector | matrix | array | cell array | table

Input array, specified as a vector, matrix, array, cell array, or table.

Example: [1 2 3 4]

Example: ['abcde']

Example: [1 2; 3 4]

Example: {'abcde',[1 2 3]}

Example: table(rand(1,5),rand(1,5))

dim — Dimension to operate alongpositive integer scalar

Dimension to operate along, specified as a positive integer scalar. If no value is specified, the default is the first array dimension whose size does not equal 1.

The following illustration shows the difference between dim=1 and dim=2 when A is a matrix.
