About unique command problem

Asked by C Zeng on 3 Apr 2013

Hi,

I used unique(A,'rows') to find unique rows of matrix A, however, it has a problem that after picking unique rows, it will order them in a manner. That is bad to my problem, I want to keep the order as originally in A.

Is there a command that prohibits sorting rows but only deleting same rows(reserve the first appearance) in MATLAB?

Thanks

Accepted answer

Doc says:

    [C,ia,ic] = unique(A,setOrder) and [C,ia,ic] = unique(A,'rows',setOrder) returns
    C in a specific order. setOrder='sorted' returns the values (or rows) of C in
    sorted order. setOrder='stable' returns the values (or rows) of C in the same 
    order as A.

Try

    setOrder='stable'
