efficient find row
Posted:

Hello,
i was wandering, if there is an efficient way to find rows equal to a certain vector in matrices.
My current approach (which varies) is something like this r =
3 1 3 3 2 1 2 2 2 3 2 2
test_vector = 3 2 1 >> find(sum(bsxfun(@eq,test_vector,r),2) == 3) 2
so built an element specific test for all entries and then sum up the trues and find within them.
It works and it's OK.
If you need to do this often, you built a lot of values not needed later on > the first nonequal already spoils the whole row.
Any idea? Wishing a happy day, Andreas
