The REVERSE function reverses the order of one dimension of an array.
This routine is written in the IDL language. Its source code can be found in the file
reverse.pro in the
lib subdirectory of the IDL distribution.
Result = REVERSE( Array [, Subscript_Index] [, /OVERWRITE] )
Returns the reversed dimension of the array.
The array containing the original data.
An integer specifying the dimension index (1, 2, 3, etc.) that will be reversed. This argument must be less than or equal to the number of dimensions of Array. If this argument is omitted, the first subscript is reversed.
Set this keyword to conserve memory by doing the transformation "in-place." The result overwrites the previous contents of the array. This keyword is ignored for one- or two-dimensional arrays.
Reverse the order of an array where each element is set to the value of its subscript:
; Create an array: A = [[0,1,2],[3,4,5],[6,7,8]] ; Print the array: PRINT, 'Original Array:' PRINT, A ; Reverse the columns of A. PRINT, 'Reversed Columns:' PRINT, REVERSE(A) ; Reverse the rows of A: PRINT, 'Reversed Rows:' PRINT, REVERSE(A, 2)
Original Array: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Reversed Columns: 2 1 0 5 4 3 8 7 6 Reversed Rows: 6 7 8 3 4 5 0 1 2
