Well, w/o seeing what you did and the error, can't comment...the above is commentary, not code. The subset of a given by (2:end,2) is a column vector containing 5,1. So, the min() of that vector is 1 and the second location.

Oh, sorry...for the dimension optional argument, need an empty comparison fieldthe above compares the subarray to the constant 2, not what I was intending...
[x ix] = min(a(2:end,:),[],2);
doc min
