eachindex function makes it really easy to iterate over multidimensional arrays. Sometimes, however, I need access to not just the sequential index as described in memory (an Int) but also the individual dimension indices that are common of typical (e.g. C-like) for loops (e.g.
(ix, iy, iz)).
Is there an easy way to go back and forth between index formats given a particular array? For example, something like
A = rand(2,3) for i in eachindex(A) index_tuple = convert_index(A,i) # would give me (1,1), (2,1), (1,2), ... end
(I see in the help there’s a way to get a
CartesianIndex using a
view, but then I lose my original index)
