Workspace Method Select

Description

Method to select some elements from one array and copy them to
a new array. (Works also for vectors.)

This works also for higher dimensional objects, where the selection is
always performed in the first dimension.

If needleindexes is set to [-1], all elements are copied.
For example:

Select(y,x,[0,3])

will select the first and fourth row of matrix x and copy them to the
output matrix y.

Note that it is even safe to use this method if needles and haystack
are the same variable.
