Thanks for this information. My problem is in running this code:
%Delete saccades except when they mark the start/stop of image
if strcmp(GazeType(DataLength-i,1),'Saccade')==1|strcmp(GazeType(DataLength- i,1),'Unclassified')==1;
The loop often needs to run over 300,000 times (i.e., DataLength=300,000). After nearly 8 hours , I stopped the code to find that it was only up to 53,988.
I am basically trying to delete rows in a dataset that are marked as "Saccade" or "Unclassified" unless they are marked as "ImageStart" or "ImageEnd"
