Enclose (cA) forms a scalar of an entire array A. Enclose with axis (c [IJA) forms a set of items by enclosing along specified axes. Partition (VcA) and partition with axis (vc [I JA) permit grouping into separate items portions of data along a specific axis where the left argument of partition determines the nature of the enclosure and the axis specification determines the axis along which the partition is to occur.
