## [Scilab-users] Removing elements of one vector from another vector

 Hello, Is there any simple way to remove from one vector elements which are in another vector. For example: a=[1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8] b=[1 3 5] resulting vector: c=[2 4 6 7 8]. I wonder if this can be done without a "for" loop. Thanks in advance, Iza _______________________________________________ users mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.scilab.org/mailman/listinfo/users

## Re: Removing elements of one vector from another vector

 In reply to this post by Iza Hi Iza Yes, as Dang says ... I think what you're doing is one of several "set-operations" you can do in Scilab. Others may also come in handy for you: https://help.scilab.org/doc/5.5.2/en_US/section_b26c1facefdb399710752631e1bfb765.html/Claus On 16.08.2018 16:55, Izabela Wójcik-Grząba wrote: > Hello, > > Is there any simple way to remove from one vector elements which are > in another vector.

## Re: Removing elements of one vector from another vector

 Thank you Dang and Claus, I know some of these "matrix functions" but "members" is a new one for me although I thought that something like that must exist :-) Now I have slightly different problem. I will show this on a simple example: A=[0 0 0 0 0]' is the initial form of matrix B=[10 15]' is the matrix of values C=[2 4]' is the matrix of positions of the values from B in A, so the resulting matrix A would look like: A=[0 10 0 15 0]' Maybe there is also a smart function for that? Thanks, Iza _______________________________________________ users mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.scilab.org/mailman/listinfo/users

 Thank you very much. I haven't tried it this way but I was really close.
