## Get indices of adjacent entries in array

### Description

Determines the relative vector positions of entries which are adjacent in an array.

### Usage

```indexBox(upp, lwr, dim)
```

### Arguments

 `upp` A vector of non-negative integers, giving the distance in the positive direction from the centre in each co-ordinate. `lwr` A vector of non-positive integers, giving the negative distance from the centre. `dim` integer vector of array dimensions.

### Details

Given a particular cell in an array, which are the entries within (for example) 1 unit in any direction? This function gives the (relative) value of such indices. See examples.

Indices may be repeated if the range exceeds the size of the array in any dimension.

### Value

An integer vector giving relative positions of the indices.

`arrayInd`.

### Examples

```
arr = array(1:144, dim=c(3,4,3,4))
arr[2,2,2,3]
# which are entries within 1 unit each each direction of 2,2,2,3?

inds = 89 + indexBox(1,-1,c(3,4,3,4))
inds = inds[inds > 0 & inds <= 144]
arrayInd(inds, c(3,4,3,4))

# what about just in second dimension?
inds = 89 + indexBox(c(0,1,0,0),c(0,-1,0,0),c(3,4,3,4))
inds = inds[inds > 0 & inds <= 144]
arrayInd(inds, c(3,4,3,4))

```
