# any

Version:

Determines whether any non-zero input elements exist. any is equivalent to not(all(not(.))).

## Syntax

status = any(a)
status = any(a, dim)

## a

Scalar or array of any dimension.

## dim

Dimension along which MathScript determines whether any input elements are non-zero. dim is a positive integer. For example, if a is a matrix and dim has the value one, the function works column-wise and returns a row vector containing one Boolean element for each column of a. If dim is not specified, the function uses the non-singleton dimension of a.

## status

0 (False), if a contains no non-zero elements. 1 (True), if a contains non-zero elements. Status is a Boolean.

A = [0, 4; 9, 6];
STATUS = any(A)
