How to slice an array across multiple dimensions with two limit arrays?
4 views (last 30 days)
I'm interested in taking an arbitrary N-dimensional array, and two 1xN vectors, and using the two vectors as start/stop indices to slice the array, but I'm not sure how. Here's what I mean:
Let X be an N-dimensional array.
Let A and B be 1xN vectors like so:
A=[a1, a2, ..., aN]
B=[b1, b2, ..., bN]
How do I slice X such that I get this:
Y = X(a1:b1, a2:b2, ..., aN:bN)
I tried X(A:B), but that doesn't work - not even sure what that operation is doing, but it isn't doing what I want. I tried to think of some way to do it with logical indexing, but nothing simple came to mind. I could slice the array one dimension at a time in a loop, but it seems like there must be a one-liner. Thanks!
