Input can be of size ``TxBx*`` where T is the length of the longest sequence (equal to ``lengths[0]``), B is the batch size, and * is any number of dimensions (including 0). If ``batch_first`` is True ``BxTx*`` inputs are expected. The sequences should be sorted by length in a decreasing order, i.e. ``input[:,0]`` should be the longest sequence, and ``input[:,B-1]`` the shortest one.
