Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

your link is

http://www.mathworks.com/access/helpdesk/help/techdoc/index.html?
/access/helpdesk/help/techdoc/ref/sub2ind.html&
http://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1GGLS_en-USUS294US304&aq=f&
sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=sub2ind

http://www.mathworks.com/access/helpdesk/help/techdoc/index.html?
/access/helpdesk/help/techdoc/ref/sub2ind.html
