maxloc(array [, arg] [, /keepdims])
Returns the location of one or more maximum values from the numerical
array, expressed as indices into the array. For real data
types, the maximum is the value closest to infinity. For complex data
types, the maximum is the value with the greatest magnitude. Generally,
arg indicates which dimensions are included in searching
for a maximum. There must not be any duplicates in the elements of
arg. For example,
maxloc(x, 0) returns the location
of maximum value over all values of the first dimension, and
maxloc(x, [0,1]) returns the location of maxima over all values
of the first two dimensions.
By default, the result has a number of dimensions equal to the number of
array minus the number of elements of
/keepdims is specified, then the dimensions indicated by
arg are not omitted but set to 1.
arg is a numerical array with the same number of
array, then its elements indicate the class
each corresponding element of
array belongs to and the
location of the maximum value in each class is returned, with the
location of the maximum of class 0 or the most negative class in the
first element of the result.
The last found maximum value is stored in
!lastmax and its index
!lastmaxloc, and the corresponding numbers for the minima in
!lastminloc. For complex arrays, the values
!lastmin are the magnitudes of the
corresponding extreme values.
x = [[[1,7]],[[3,5]]] then
max(x) = 7 max(x,0) =
[7,5] max(x,1) = [3,7].
