MINVAL — Minimum value of an array
- Determines the minimum value of the elements in an array value, or, if
the DIM argument is supplied, determines the minimum value along
each row of the array in the DIM direction. If MASK is
present, only the elements for which MASK is
considered. If the array has zero size, or all of the elements of
.FALSE., then the result is
ARRAY is numeric, or a string of
CHAR(255) characters if
ARRAY is of character type.
- Fortran 95 and later
- Transformational function
RESULT = MINVAL(ARRAY, DIM [, MASK])
RESULT = MINVAL(ARRAY [, MASK])
|ARRAY ||Shall be an array of type |
|DIM ||(Optional) Shall be a scalar of type
INTEGER, with a value between one and the rank of ARRAY,
inclusive. It may not be an optional dummy argument.
|MASK ||Shall be an array of type |
and conformable with ARRAY.
- Return value:
- If DIM is absent, or if ARRAY has a rank of one, the result
is a scalar. If DIM is present, the result is an array with a
rank one less than the rank of ARRAY, and a size corresponding to
the size of ARRAY with the DIM dimension removed. In all
cases, the result is of the same type and kind as ARRAY.
