MethodError: no method matching -(::NTuple{4,Int64}, ::Int64)

I am new and dont understand why this doesnt work!

original_cost = npzread("file.npy")
size_cost = size(original_cost)
println('size of original table',size_cost)
left_index = 40
right_index = size_cost - left_index
println(left_index, right_index)
cost = copy(original_cost)

with output

size of original table(101, 101, 101, 101)

Hey there! size returns a tuple, not a number. Hence, when you try to substract a number from it you get an error. You might want to use size(original_cost, 1) instead, assuming that the extent in every dimension is the same.


ahh yes, thanks! :slight_smile:

You’re welcome!
