, axis=None)[source]

Find the indices of the first and last unmasked values along an axis.

If all values are masked, return None. Otherwise, return a list of two tuples, corresponding to the indices of the first and last unmasked values respectively.

Parameters :

a : array_like

The input array.

axis : int, optional

Axis along which to perform the operation. If None (default), applies to a flattened version of the array.

Returns :

edges : ndarray or list

An array of start and end indexes if there are any masked data in the array. If there are no masked data in the array, edges is a list of the first and last index.
