How do you remove particular consecutive values from an Array?

Asked by Wes

I want to be able to remove a consecutive value from an array, but I want it to be a certain value(zeros specifically).

So if I have an array that looks like:

x=(0 1 2 5 9 9 0 8 8 3 0 0 0 0 0)

I want the end result to be:

x=(0 1 2 5 9 9 0 8 8 3 0)

So I want to keep some consecutive values but not consecutive zero values. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated?

Accepted answer
dx = [NaN diff(x)]
removeThis = (x==0) & (dx==0)
x(removeThis) = []
