The firstindex() is an inbuilt function in julia which is used to return the first index of the specified collection. If a dimension d is given, return the first index of collection along dimension d.
Syntax: firstindex(collection) or firstindex(collection, d) Parameters:
  • collection: Specified collection.
  • b: Specified dimension.
Returns: It returns the first index of the specified collection. If a dimension d is given, return the first index of collection along dimension d.
Example 1:
# Julia program to illustrate 
# the use of firstindex() method
   
# Getting the first index of the specified collection.
println(firstindex(0))
println(firstindex([1, 2, 3]))
println(firstindex([2 4; 5 6]))
println(firstindex([3; 5; 7; 9]))

                    
Output: Example 2:
# Julia program to illustrate 
# the use of firstindex() method
   
# Getting the first index of the specified 
# collection. If a dimension d is given, 
# return the first index of collection 
# along dimension d.
println(firstindex(rand(1, 2, 3, 4), 1))
println(firstindex(rand(1, 2, 3, 4), 2))
println(firstindex([1, 2, 3], 2))
println(firstindex([2 4; 6 8], 2))
println(firstindex([2; 4; 6; 8], 2))
println(firstindex(cat([1 2; 3 4], [5 6; 7 8], [2 2; 3 4], dims = 3);))
