Hi,

I want to compare two matrices for equal values, and I want to know if there is a build-in function to do this. Ihaven't been able to find it in the MATLAB help.

example: A=[1 2 3; 4 5 6; 7 8 9] B=[9 8 7; 6 5 4; 3 2 1] this should return something like result=[0 0 0;0 1 0;0 0 0] so I can see there is an equal number on the same position in both matrices and the position that it is in.

Thanks!

Ellen

This doesn't work for two matrix with different dimensions, any way to compare two matrix with different rows and same number of column (eg A=50*16 vs B=100*16)?

How if I want two compare the two matrices and get only one digit; I mean 1 if both were the same and 0 if at least two element of the matrices differ?

I have just found the answer to my question:

` find(A~=B)`
