Index of maximimum value in random array

Index of maximimum value in random array

Index of maximimum value in random array

I have an array called S, it is not monotonic, but essentially random.  I have found the maximum value using the max(S) function.  Now, I would like to know the index at which S is a maximum.

I have searched through these eng-tips archives (best I could with the search tools available), and have searched on PTC's site and used a few google searches, but I have not turned up how to do this.

I suspect that this is a simple matter, so I would appreciate it if someone would please point me in the right direction.

RE: Index of maximimum value in random array

Thanks IRstuff - that is exactly what I was looking for.  Star for you!
