# slice

``````..  slice(A, inds...)

Returns a view of array ``A`` with the given indices like :func:`sub`, but drops all dimensions indexed with scalars.``````

## Examples

The `slice` function in Julia returns a view of the array `A` with the given indices, similar to the `sub` function. However, it drops all dimensions indexed with scalars.

``````julia> A = [1 2 3; 4 5 6; 7 8 9]
3×3 Array{Int64,2}:
1  2  3
4  5  6
7  8  9

julia> slice(A, 1:2, 2:3)
2×2 Array{Int64,2}:
2  3
5  6``````

In this example, the `slice` function is used to create a view of array `A` using the indices `1:2` for rows and `2:3` for columns. The resulting view is a 2x2 array containing the selected elements.

Note that the `slice` function drops any dimensions indexed with scalars. This means that if a single index is provided for a particular dimension, that dimension is removed from the resulting view.

``````julia> A = [1 2 3; 4 5 6; 7 8 9]
3×3 Array{Int64,2}:
1  2  3
4  5  6
7  8  9

julia> slice(A, 2)
1-element view(::Array{Int64,2}, :, 2) with eltype Int64:
4
5
6``````

In this example, the `slice` function is used with a single index `2`. The resulting view is a 3-element array representing the second column of the original array `A`.

It's important to note that the `slice` function returns a view of the original array, not a new array. Any modifications made to the view will affect the original array as well.
