strides

strides(A)

Returns a tuple of the memory strides in each dimension

Examples

1. Get the memory strides of a 1-dimensional array:

``````julia> arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
julia> strides(arr)
(1,)``````

In this example, the `strides` function returns a tuple with a single value `(1,)`. This indicates that the array `arr` has a stride of 1 in the only dimension.

2. Get the memory strides of a 2-dimensional array:

``````julia> matrix = [1 2 3; 4 5 6];
julia> strides(matrix)
(3, 1)``````

The `strides` function returns a tuple `(3, 1)` for the 2-dimensional array `matrix`. This means that the memory stride in the first dimension is 3 and in the second dimension is 1.

3. Get the memory strides of a multi-dimensional array:
``````julia> tensor = [1 2 3; 4 5 6; 7 8 9];
julia> strides(tensor)
(3, 1)``````

Here, the `strides` function returns a tuple `(3, 1)` for the multi-dimensional array `tensor`. It indicates that the memory stride in the first dimension is 3 and in the second dimension is 1.

Common mistake example:

``````julia> x = [1 2 3; 4 5 6];
julia> strides(x)
ERROR: MethodError: no method matching strides(::Array{Int64,2})``````

In this example, the `strides` function is used on a 2-dimensional array. However, the function does not accept 2-dimensional arrays as input. It is important to provide the correct input type to the `strides` function to avoid this error.
