For Loop with two list items at a time rather that one
Posted:

Is there a way to make a for loop use two items from it's list in every iteration? I need the 1st and 2nd value, then the 3rd and 4th, and so on from the list they are stored in. I have a scenario where I have a (possible large) list of X locations from a graph that are significant to me, and I want to collect the data between 2 of the points automatically. ex:
changepoint = [8 61 147 218 381 472 533 552]
c((changepoint(1)+1):(changepoint(2)1)) % c((8+1):(611)) since changepoint(1) = 8, and changepoint(2) = 61, reducing to: % c(9:60) This is what I want, as well as: % c(148:217) % c(382:471) % c(534:551)
% Where c is my original data, and I want to find the values between the % 1st changepoint and the 2nd, then the data between the 3rd changepoint % and the 4th, between the 5th and 6th, and so on. % Can I automate this with a for loop?
