# NumericArray

Used in function input declaration statements to define an input as a Numerical Array with a specified number of dimensions.

Input defined as Numerical can be used both as a *Numerical Simple* as well as a *Numerical Series* input; the value of a Simple input is constant from bar to bar and thus has no history, while the value of a Series input may vary from bar to bar and can be referenced historically.

## Usage

`Input: InputName[M1,M2,M3,etc.](NumericArray)`

## Parameters

**InputName**- an expression specifying the input name. The name can consist of letters, underscore characters, numbers, and periods. The name*cannot*begin with a number or a period and is not case-sensitive.**M**- an input variable that represents the maximum index value for each dimension of the array passed to the function; a single input variable specifies a one-dimensional array input, two input variables specify a two-dimensional (M1 by M2) array input, three input variables specify a three-dimensional (M1 by M2 by M3) array input, etc.- An input will only accept an array with the specified number of dimensions.

## Example

Declare Length as a one-dimensional Numerical Array function input:

`Input: Length[X](NumericArray);`

The maximum index value for the array passed to the function will be assigned to input variable X.

Declare Table as a three-dimensional Numerical Array function input:

`Input: Table[X,Y,Z](NumericArray);`

The maximum index value for each dimension of the array passed to the function will be assigned to input variables X, Y, and Z.
