I have a matrix (m) that is 17543 x 17. The values are of the type double.
I want to randomly select 1 row from this matrix and save it as a new vector.
I tried this:
mrow = m(randsample(m:17543,1),:)
This works if the values are integers but it does not work because they are doubles.
It returns the error message:
"Subscript indices must either be real positive integers or logicals."
Any help would be really appreciated.
ind = ceil(rand * size(m,1)); mrow = m(ind,:);
Try using randi
randomRow = m(randi(size(m,1)),:);
m = randn(17543,17); idx = randperm(size(m,1),1); B = m(idx,:);
idx tells you which row you randomly selected.
If you have an older version of MATLAB where the above does not work do:
m = randn(17543,17); idx = randperm(size(m,1),1); B = m(idx(1),:);
