## mep: a pedestrian vector index list creator

version 1.0.0.0 (2.17 KB) by
Creates epochs (0|1) in a logical array according to a list of indices (begin:end).

Updated 21 May 2003

creates - completely vectorized - a logical array/vector <lvec> with epochs/intervals set to <1|TRUE> according to a list of indices of the form:
begin = [b1 b2 ... bN]
end = [e1 e2 ... eN]
where <b>s and <e>s may overlap or be included within each other.
lvec=[b1:e1 b2:e2 ... bN:eN]
itself can be used to retrieve/assign values from a numerical construct, eg,
vec(1,2,lvec)=nan;

help mep
vix = mep(v,ixb,ixe)
vix = mep(v,[ixb;ixe])
to create epochs

returns in VIX a <logical> array with epochs set to
true: ixb(1)->ixe(1) ... ixb(N)->ixe(N)
false: otherwise
correctly handles epoch overlaps/inclusions/reversals

v: vector (to size VIX, is not changed)
ixb: list of indices BEGIN epoch
ixe: list of indices END epoch

% examples
z=zeros(1,10);
vix=mep(z(1,:),[1 5],[3 10]);
z(1,vix)=1
% 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1
z=zeros(1,10);
vix=mep(z(1,:),[2 3 2 6 9],[2 3 4 7 10]);

z='----------';
vix=mep(z,[[1 3 6];[4 4 8]]);
z(vix)='+'

A useful tool. My personal preference would be a longer, more indicative name.
