\title{Calculates the interquartile range of the difference between each element of
a row (column) of a matrix-like object}
\usage{
\S4method{colIQRDiffs}{dgCMatrix}(x, rows = NULL, cols = NULL, na.rm = FALSE, diff = 1L, trim = 0)

\S4method{rowIQRDiffs}{dgCMatrix}(x, rows = NULL, cols = NULL, na.rm = FALSE, diff = 1L, trim = 0)
}
\arguments{
\item{x}{An NxK matrix-like object.}

\item{rows}{A \code{\link{vector}} indicating the subset of rows
(and/or columns) to operate over. If \code{\link{NULL}}, no subsetting is
done.}

\item{cols}{A \code{\link{vector}} indicating the subset of rows
(and/or columns) to operate over. If \code{\link{NULL}}, no subsetting is
done.}

\item{na.rm}{If \code{\link[base:logical]{TRUE}}, \code{\link{NA}}s
are excluded first, otherwise not.}

\item{diff}{An integer specifying the order of difference.}

\item{trim}{A double in [0,1/2] specifying the fraction of observations to
be trimmed from each end of (sorted) x before estimation.}
}
\value{
Returns a \code{\link{numeric}} \code{\link{vector}} of length N (K).

\description{
Calculates the interquartile range of the difference between each element of
a row (column) of a matrix-like object.

\code{\link{array}}, or \code{\link{numeric}} call
