The linearBins() function generates a list of linearly separated floats. It is a helper function meant to generate bin bounds for the histogram() function.

Output data type: Array of floats

linearBins(
  start: 0.0,
  width: 5.0,
  count: 20,
  infinity: true
)

Parameters

start

The first value in the returned list.

width

The distance between subsequent bin values.

count

The number of bins to create.

infinity

When true, adds an additional bin with a value of positive infinity. Defaults to true.

Examples

linearBins(start: 0.0, width: 10.0, count: 10)

// Generated list: [0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, +Inf]
