minimum(A, dims)

Compute the minimum value of an array over the given dimensions.


  1. Find the minimum value in an array:

    julia> arr = [5, 10, 2, 8, 3];
    julia> minimum(arr)

    This example finds the smallest element in the array arr.

  2. Find the minimum value in a range of numbers:

    julia> minimum(1:10)

    It determines the minimum value in the range from 1 to 10.

  3. Find the minimum value in a vector of strings:
    julia> words = ["apple", "banana", "orange"];
    julia> minimum(words)

    It identifies the minimum string based on lexicographic order.

Common mistake example:

julia> minimum([])
ERROR: MethodError: no method matching minimum(::Array{Any,1})

In this example, an empty array is passed to the minimum function, resulting in a MethodError. Ensure that the collection passed as an argument is not empty to avoid such errors.
