Given a vector x, the i?amin functions return the position of the vector element x[i] that has the smallest absolute value for real flavors, or the smallest sum |Re(x[i])|+|Im(x[i])| for complex flavors.

If either n or incx are not positive, the routine returns 0.

If more than one vector element is found with the same smallest absolute value, the index of the first one encountered is returned.

If the vector contains NaN values, then the routine returns the index of the first NaN.

Input Parameters


On entry, n specifies the number of elements in vector x.


Array, size at least (1+(n-1)*abs(incx)).


Specifies the increment for the elements of x.

Return Values

Indicates the position of vector element with the smallest absolute value such that x[index-1] has the smallest absolute value. The index returned is zero-based.
