GAUSS draws a useful distinction between "shifting" and 

Works roughly like this for the 2D case:

#rotater: rotate row elements
# Format:    y = rotater(x,r)
#            rotater(x,r)
# Input:     x           RxK array
#            rotateby    size R integer array, or integer (rotation amounts)
# Output:    y           RxK array:
#                          rows rotated by rotateby

#shiftr: shift row elements and fill with fv
# Format:    y = shiftr(x,shiftby,fv)
# Input:     x        RxC array
#            shiftby  Rx1 array or scalar (shift amounts)
#            fv       Rx1 array or scalar (fill values)
# Output:    y        RxC array:
#                       rows shifted by shiftby
#                       rows filled with fill
