#### Julia: Find the indices of all maxima

```In Julia you can use findmax or indmax to find the index of the biggest entry in a matrix. But if you have multiple entries with this maximum value, you get the index of the first one.
How can I get the indices of all max value entries in a matrix?
```
```If this is not a bottleneck
A = [1, 2, 3, 3, 3]
A_max = maximum(A)
find(a->a==A_max, A)
Will give you what you need, but it does go over the array twice.
```
```You can also use comprehensions. The array will be iterated twice.
v = [1, 2, 3, 3, 3]
maxval = maximum(v)
positions = [i for (i, x) in enumerate(v) if x == maxval]
If performance is critical then the following algorithm may work:
function findallmax(arr)
max_positions = Vector{Int}()
min_val = typemin(eltype(arr))
for i in eachindex(arr)
if arr[i] > min_val
min_val = arr[i]
empty!(max_positions)
push!(max_positions, i)
elseif arr[i] == min_val
push!(max_positions, i)
end
end
max_positions
end
one iteration is required.```
