# strange

range

### Calling Sequence

[r]=strange(x) [r]=strange(x,'r') (or, equivalently, [r]=strange(x,1)) [r]=strange(x,'c') (or, equivalently, [r]=strange(x,2))

### Arguments

- x
real or complex vector or matrix

### Description

The range is the distance between the largest and smallest value, [r]=strange(x) computes the range of vector or matrix x.

[r]=strange(x,'r') (or equivalently [r]=strange(x,1)) give a row vector with the range of each column.

[r]=strange(x,'c') (or equivalently [r]=strange(x,2)) give a column vector with the range of each row.

### Examples

x = [22 63 57 24 31 76 85 67 24 94 1 69 73 22 22 34 88 20 89 32 67 7 55 66 37 ]; strange(x) // 94-1 = 93 strange(x, 'r') // [ 76-1=75 88-7=81 73-20=53 89-22=67 94-22=72 ] strange(x, 'c') // [ 63-22=41 ; 94-24=70 ; 73-1=72 ; 89-20=69 ; 67-7=60 ]
