No point in sort() here; but Bruno's correct in not "recomputing" the
logical vector. As my note to him allows, was a little slow on the draw

[liA, iB] = ismember(A,B(:,1));

Now, the one possible "fly in the ointment" is that ismember() returns a
vector of length(A) and the locations from B returned are the one
highest index found. If you need all occurrences and there can be
duplicates in B then you've got another step.
