Question: programming issue

To Whom it May Concern:

I have a 3D array, P, with dimension P:=array(1..6,1..6,1..5). I would like to extract each 2D array from the 3D array and declare them as matrices. Additionally, I would like to store the sequence of matrices is a 1D array. I tried the following, but it did not work:



L:= matrix(1..6,1..6):


for l to 5 do: for i to 6 do: for j to 6 do: L[i,j] := P[i,j,l]: od: od: V[l]:=L: od:

The code fails in that V[1]=V[2]=...v[5] = P[i,j,5]. 

Is there a way to overcome this?


Also, given a matrix, is there a way to extract a column vector from that matrix? I.e. in FORTAN is M is a matrix, M(:,3) would return the third column of M. Is there a similar command in Maple?
