mxGetNumberOfElements (C and Fortran)

Number of elements in array

C Syntax

#include "matrix.h"
size_t mxGetNumberOfElements(const mxArray *pm);

Fortran Syntax

mwPointer mxGetNumberOfElements(pm)
mwPointer pm

Arguments

pm

Pointer to an mxArray

Returns

Number of elements in the specified mxArray

Description

mxGetNumberOfElements tells you how many elements an array has. For example, if the dimensions of an array are 3-by-5-by-10, mxGetNumberOfElements returns the number 150.

    Note:   Fortran does not have an equivalent of size_t. mwPointer is a preprocessor macro that provides the appropriate Fortran type. The value returned by this function, however, is not a pointer.
