seacrhing/indexing a vector
Posted:
Jul 6, 2012 8:23 AM


Hi,
I am trying to index a vector so I can establish the location of a given number. So for example, if x = 5 10 15 20 25 I can search for 20 and be given teh answer that 20 is the 4th number in the vector.
In a previous code I acheieved this with the line of code:
[c index] = min(abs(gh));
However if I try:
[c index] = x
It does not work. Please can someone offer some help as to how I can search along a vector for a specific value and identify the location of the value?
Thank you Dan
