**Functions That Control Indexing Style**

If you have row-column subscripts but want to use linear indexing instead, you can convert to the latter using the `sub2ind`

function. In the 3-by-3 matrix `A`

used in the previous section, `sub2ind`

changes a standard row-column index of (3,2) to a linear index of `6`

:

To get the row-column equivalent of a linear index, use the `ind2sub`

function:
