Question:Matrix resize or reshape

Question:Matrix resize or reshape

Maple

Thanks for the orientation. I have read the help and attempted doing something.
B := Matrix(17, 6)
BlockCopy(A, 0, 17, 17, 1, B, 0, 17, 17, 1);
print(`output redirected...`); # input placeholder
BlockCopy(A, 17, 17, 17, 1, B, 34, 17, 17, 1);
BlockCopy(A, 34, 17, 16, 1, B, 68, 17, 16, 1);
BlockCopy(A, 50, 17, 17, 1, B, 17, 17, 17, 1);
BlockCopy(A, 67, 17, 17, 1, B, 51, 17, 17, 1);
BlockCopy(A, 84, 17, 16, 1, B, 85, 17, 16, 1);
B;
But he seems very long to me. I have been trying with Copy. But all that I get is what I show.
C := Matrix(17, 6)
seq(Copy(ColumnDimension(A), A, i, RowDimension(A), C, i, 17), i = 0 .. 16);
