Function arrow::compute::interleave

pub fn interleave(
    values: &[&dyn Array],
    indices: &[(usize, usize)]
) -> Result<Arc<dyn Array>, ArrowError>
Expand description

Takes elements by index from a list of Array, creating a new Array from those values.

Each element in indices is a pair of usize with the first identifying the index of the Array in values, and the second the index of the value within that Array
