Inverse permute the dimensions of a multidimensional array

**Syntax**

**Description**

```
A = ipermute(B,order)
```

is the inverse of `permute`

. `ipermute`

rearranges the dimensions of `B`

so that `permute(A,order)`

will produce `B`

. `B`

has the same values as `A`

but the order of the subscripts needed to access any particular element are rearranged as specified by `order`

. All the elements of `order`

must be unique.

**Remarks**

`permute`

and `ipermute`

are a generalization of transpose (`.'`

) for multidimensional arrays.

**Examples**

Consider the 2-by-2-by-3 array `a`

:

Permuting and inverse permuting `a`

in the same fashion restores the array to its original form:
