# codim(CoherentSheaf) -- codimension of the support of a coherent sheaf on a projective variety

## Description

Computes the codimension of the support of F as given by dim(R) - dim(M) where M is the module representing F over the homogeneous coordinate ring R of X.

## Caveat

The returned value is the usual codimension if R is an integral domain or, more generally, equidimensional.
