Hello everyone,
I have a multidimensional array and would like to know what is the depth of it? For ex given the following 2 dimensional array


the total number of rows is 6. I would like to know if there is a direct way of determining the depth of a multi dimensional array. As of now, I am iterating through the array and computing it. for a one dimensional array, "length" gives me the total number of columns and I am looking towards something similar for row numbers.

Actually, you don't. You have a one-dimensional array. It just happens to hold...arrays.
