# rot90

Rotate array 90 degrees

## Syntax

• ``B = rot90(A)``
example
• ``B = rot90(A,k)``
example

## Description

example

````B = rot90(A)` rotates array `A` counterclockwise by 90 degrees. For multidimensional arrays, `rot90` rotates in the plane formed by the first and second dimensions.```

example

````B = rot90(A,k)` rotates array `A` counterclockwise by `k*90` degrees, where `k` is an integer.```

## Examples

collapse all

Create a column vector of sequential elements.

```A = (1:5)' ```
```A = 1 2 3 4 5 ```

Rotate `A` counterclockwise by 90 degrees using `rot90`.

```B = rot90(A) ```
```B = 1 2 3 4 5 ```

The result, `B`, has the same elements as `A` but a different orientation.

Create a 3-by-3-by-2 cell array of characters.

```A = cat(3,{'a' 'b' 'c';'d' 'e' 'f';'g' 'h' 'i'},{'j' 'k' 'l';'m' 'n' 'o';'p' 'q' 'r'}) ```
``` 3×3×2 cell array A(:,:,1) = 'a' 'b' 'c' 'd' 'e' 'f' 'g' 'h' 'i' A(:,:,2) = 'j' 'k' 'l' 'm' 'n' 'o' 'p' 'q' 'r' ```

Rotate the cell array by 270 degrees.

```B = rot90(A,3) ```
``` 3×3×2 cell array B(:,:,1) = 'g' 'd' 'a' 'h' 'e' 'b' 'i' 'f' 'c' B(:,:,2) = 'p' 'm' 'j' 'q' 'n' 'k' 'r' 'o' 'l' ```

The function rotates each page of the array independently. Since a full 360 degree rotation (`k = 4`) leaves the array unchanged, `rot90(A,3)` is equivalent to `rot90(A,-1)`.

## Input Arguments

collapse all

Input array, specified as a vector, matrix, or multidimensional array.

Data Types: `single` | `double` | `int8` | `int16` | `int32` | `int64` | `uint8` | `uint16` | `uint32` | `uint64` | `logical` | `char` | `string` | `struct` | `cell` | `categorical` | `datetime` | `duration` | `calendarDuration`
Complex Number Support: Yes

Rotation constant, specified as an integer. Specify `k` to rotate by `k*90` degrees rather than nesting calls to `rot90`.

Example: `rot90(A,-2)` rotates `A` by -180 degrees and is equivalent to `rot90(A,2)`, which rotates by 180 degrees.
