We continue the previous example and use find to plot the part of
the peaks function that lies between y = 20 and y = 40:
clf
ind = find(20<=y & y<=40);
plot(x,y,x(ind),y(ind),'o')
grid
When used with one output argument, find assumes that the input is
a vector. When the input is a matrix find first strings out the elements
as a single column vector and returns the corresponding indices. As an
example we consider the spiral matrix:
>> s = spiral(3)
s=
7 8 9
6 1 2
5 4 3
We find the elements of s less than 6:
>> s<6
ans =
0
0
0
0
1
1
1
1
1
>> find(s<6)
ans =
3
5
6
8
9
The result of find is a vector of indices of s counted down the first col-
umn, then the second, and then the third. The following example shows
how the results of the find command can be used to extract elements
from a matrix that satisfy a logical test:
