# numpy.rot90¶

`numpy.``rot90`(m, k=1, axes=(0, 1))[source]

Rotate an array by 90 degrees in the plane specified by axes.

Rotation direction is from the first towards the second axis.

Parameters: m : array_like Array of two or more dimensions. k : integer Number of times the array is rotated by 90 degrees. axes: (2,) array_like The array is rotated in the plane defined by the axes. Axes must be different. New in version 1.12.0. y : ndarray A rotated view of m.

`flip`
Reverse the order of elements in an array along the given axis.
`fliplr`
Flip an array horizontally.
`flipud`
Flip an array vertically.

Notes

rot90(m, k=1, axes=(1,0)) is the reverse of rot90(m, k=1, axes=(0,1)) rot90(m, k=1, axes=(1,0)) is equivalent to rot90(m, k=-1, axes=(0,1))

Examples

```>>> m = np.array([[1,2],[3,4]], int)
>>> m
array([[1, 2],
[3, 4]])
>>> np.rot90(m)
array([[2, 4],
[1, 3]])
>>> np.rot90(m, 2)
array([[4, 3],
[2, 1]])
>>> m = np.arange(8).reshape((2,2,2))
>>> np.rot90(m, 1, (1,2))
array([[[1, 3],
[0, 2]],
[[5, 7],
[4, 6]]])
