INDEX is a C++ library which can convert the index of a multidimensional array entry into the corresponding index of a one dimensional vector, using either row or column major indexing, with zero or unit base.
Consider, for example, the following 3x4 array A:
11 12 13 14 21 22 23 24 31 32 33 34
Indexing by columns, the array would be stored in a 1D vector as
11 21 31 | 12 22 32 | 13 23 33 | 14 24 34and the indexing of the elements would be
11 21 31 | 12 22 32 | 13 23 33 | 14 24 34 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 <- zero based 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 <- one based
Indexing by rows, the array would be stored in a 1D vector as
11 12 13 14 | 21 22 23 24 | 31 32 33 34and the indexing of the elements would be
11 12 13 14 | 21 22 23 24 | 31 32 33 34 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 <- zero based 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 <- one based
