librosa.util.index_to_slice

librosa.util.index_to_slice(idx, idx_min=None, idx_max=None, step=None, pad=True)[source]

Generate a slice array from an index array.

Parameters
idxlist-like

Array of index boundaries

idx_min, idx_maxNone or int

Minimum and maximum allowed indices

stepNone or int

Step size for each slice. If None, then the default step of 1 is used.

padboolean

If True, pad idx to span the range idx_min:idx_max.

Returns
sliceslist of slice

slices[i] = slice(idx[i], idx[i+1], step) Additional slice objects may be added at the beginning or end, depending on whether pad==True and the supplied values for idx_min and idx_max.
