As stated most newbie that doesn't have experience will TOTALLY have no idea
what DIM is. The only hint is short form for dimension but what
dimension?vertical,horizontal? If so,then how do they tell computer (input
They will think like:"h"?"v"?"1"?does 1 represent anything to the parser?Do I
just simply type "vertical"? or are the dimension refering to cartesian plane
x axis and y axis looking at the matrix?put "x"?

All in all.The old documentation is kinda bad and inherited since long time
ago.It's probably because inherited from Matlab just make it work at the
initial growth.

But we as a modern programmer can do better than letting users do the guess
work or try their luck on search engine right?
