d <- array(as.integer(round(runif(125)*10, 0)), dim=c(5, 5, 5))
data_int <- apply(d, c(1,2), sum)

Subject: [R] integrating multi-dimensional dat along one dimension 

I just want to integrate a 3D data set along one dimension to obtain a 
2D data set. Something like: 

(given array "d" with dim nx,ny,nz ...) 


for (n in 1:ny) { 

for (m in 1:nx) { 




The thing is, given R's facility with integers, it seems that I should 
be able to obtain data_int without the explicit for-loops, but I haven't 
been able to figure out how to do it. Anyone know how? Thanks.
