Creates an Array containing evenly spaced data.
RegularArray DXNewRegularArray(Type t, int dim, int n,
Pointer origin, Pointer delta)
The new Array Object represents a Regular Array of n points starting at origin with a spacing of delta. The rank is assumed to be 1, and the shape is dim. Both origin and delta are assumed to point to items of the same type as the items in a.
Type t is one of the following:
TYPE_BYTE TYPE_HYPER TYPE_SHORT TYPE_UBYTE TYPE_INT TYPE_USHORT TYPE_DOUBLE TYPE_UINT TYPE_STRING TYPE_FLOAT
Regular Arrays are most often used as constituents of Product Arrays for the compact representation of regular grids of positions.
In previous versions of the Data Explorer software, regular arrays with zero delta values were used to store constant data. This type of data can now be stored in a Constant Array.
The Array created can be deleted with DXDelete. See 4.2 , "Memory Management".
Returns the Regular Array or returns NULL and sets an error code.
