|Description:||Counts the number of true elements in an entire array or in a specified dimension of an array.|
|Class:||Transformational function; Generic|
|Arguments:||MASK||Must be a logical array.|
|DIM (opt)||Must be a scalar integer expression with a value in the range 1 to n, where n is the rank of MASK.|
|KIND (opt)||Must be a scalar integer initialization expression.|
|Results:||The result is an array or scalar of type
If KIND is present, the
kind parameter of the result is that specified by KIND; otherwise, the kind
parameter of the result is that of default integer. If the processor
cannot represent the result value in the kind of the result, the result
The result is a scalar if DIM is omitted or MASK has rank one. A scalar result has a value equal to the number of true elements of MASK. If MASK has size zero, the result is zero.
An array result has a rank that is one less than MASK, and shape (d1, d2, ..., dDIM-1, dDIM+1, ..., dn), where (d1, d2,..., dn) is the shape of MASK.
Each element in an array result equals the number of elements that are true in the one dimensional array defined by MASK (s1, s2, ..., sDIM-1, :, sDIM+1, ..., sn).
COUNT ((/.TRUE., .FALSE., .TRUE./)) has the value 2 because two elements are true.
COUNT ((/.TRUE., .TRUE., .TRUE./)) has the value 3 because three elements are true.
A is the array
and B is the array
[ 1 5 7 ] [ 3 6 8 ]
[ 0 5 7 ] [ 2 6 9 ].
COUNT (A .NE. B, DIM=1) tests to see how many elements in each column of A are not equal to the elements in the corresponding column of B. The result has the value (2, 0, 1) because:
COUNT (A .NE. B, DIM=2) tests to see how many elements in each row of A are not equal to the elements in the corresponding row of B. The result has the value (1, 2) because:
