[R] matlab style of storing arrays compared to R

Hi

I am trying to figure out, if the matlab style of linear indexing of an array is the same as in R. i.e.

when

x <- array( 1:24, dim=c(2,3,4) )
x[3]
> 3

and if the same is true in matlab, assuming that x[n1,n2,n3] in R returns the same as y(n1,n2,n3) when y is a matrix in matlab

I found the following reference
http://www.mathworks.com/access/helpdesk/help/techdoc/index.html?/access/helpdesk/help/techdoc/matlab_prog/f1-86528.html#f1-86846

And it seems to be the same, but another source says it is different. Could somebody confirm, if it is the same?

Thanks,

Rainer
