Min View Buffer Index

Compute the minimum linear index in an underlying data buffer accessible to an array view.

Usage

var minViewBufferIndex = require( '@stdlib/ndarray/base/min-view-buffer-index' );

minViewBufferIndex( shape, strides, offset )

Computes the minimum linear index in an underlying data buffer accessible to an array view.

// Array shape:
var shape = [ 2, 2 ];

// Stride array:
var strides = [ -2, -1 ];

// Index offset which specifies the location of the first indexed value:
var offset = 13; // includes a view offset

var idx = minViewBufferIndex( shape, strides, offset );
// returns 10

Examples

var discreteUniform = require( '@stdlib/random/base/discrete-uniform' );
var shape2strides = require( '@stdlib/ndarray/base/shape2strides' );
var strides2offset = require( '@stdlib/ndarray/base/strides2offset' );
var randu = require( '@stdlib/random/base/randu' );
var minViewBufferIndex = require( '@stdlib/ndarray/base/min-view-buffer-index' );

var strides;
var offset;
var shape;
var idx;
var i;
var j;

shape = new Array( 3 );

for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
    // Generate a random array shape:
    shape[ 0 ] = discreteUniform( 1, 10 );
    shape[ 1 ] = discreteUniform( 1, 10 );
    shape[ 2 ] = discreteUniform( 1, 10 );

    // Generate strides:
    if ( randu() < 0.5 ) {
        strides = shape2strides( shape, 'row-major' );
    } else {
        strides = shape2strides( shape, 'column-major' );
    }
    j = discreteUniform( 0, shape.length-1 );
    strides[ j ] *= ( randu() < 0.5 ) ? -1 : 1;

    // Compute the index offset:
    offset = strides2offset( shape, strides ) + 25; // include view offset

    // Compute the minimum linear index:
    idx = minViewBufferIndex( shape, strides, offset );
    console.log( 'Shape: %s. Strides: %s. Offset: %d. Min idx: %d.', shape.join( 'x' ), strides.join( ',' ), offset, idx );
