# Built-in functions : place_in function

place_in function

place_in(I)

When making an array with the makearray function, place_in() returns the current position in the array. If makearray() functions are nested one inside another, the argument to the place_in() function will determine which position is returned. An argument of 1 refers to the innermost makearray().

Input: integer

Result: integer

Examples:

makearray(if place_in(1)==1 then 10 else 5, 4) --> [10, 5, 5, 5]

makearray(if place_in(1)==2 then 10 else 5, 4) --> [5, 10, 5, 5]

makearray(makearray(if place_in(2)==1 then 10 else 5, 4), 2) --> [[10, 10, 10, 10], [5, 5, 5, 5]]

makearray(makearray(if place_in(1)==1 then 10 else 5, 4), 2) --> [[10, 5, 5, 5], [10, 5, 5, 5]]

makearray(4*place_in(1),12) --> [4 8 12 16 20 24 28 32 36 40 44 48]

makearray(makearray(place_in(1)*place_in(2),12),12) -->
