nearest_interp_1d

nearest_interp_1d, a MATLAB code which interpolates a set of data using a piecewise constant interpolant defined by the nearest neighbor criterion.

NEAREST_INTERP_1D needs the R8LIB library. The test also needs the TEST_INTERP library.

Languages:

nearest_interp_1d is available in a C version and a C++ version and a Fortran90 version and a MATLAB version and an Octave version and a Python version.

Related Data and Programs:
