Dear friends, few days ago, I asked a question a litle bit similar than this one, but I made some changes and i need reply specially for this problem. In the other case I needed to re-arrange in advance the elements, now, I need to do the calculations shown below:

I have a matrix like this imput:

i mput:

```    306	305,952	304,683	302,265	300,219 (1)
306	306,008	304,977	302,45	299,846 (2)
306	305,962	304,84	302,413	299,812 (3)
306	306,051	305,051	302,396	299,877 (4)
306	306,003	304,891	302,163	300,017 (5)
306	306,004	305,002	301,997	300,186 (6)```
```    406	406,016	404,943	402,467	400,224 (7)
406	406,009	404,961	402,483	400,361 (8)
406	406,014	404,852	402,547	400,287 (9)
406	406,043	404,99	402,52	400,372 (10)
406	406,048	405,105	402,425	400,817 (11)
406	406,034	404,928	402,425	400,623 (12)```
```    506	506,038	505,182	502,518	500,878 (13)
506	506,003	505,208	502,728	500,684 (14)
506	505,971	505,11	502,841	501,118 (15)
506	505,979	505,083	502,644	500,922 (16)
506	505,985	505,065	502,942	500,955 (17)
506	506,062	505,067	502,818	501,28  (18)```

I would like to calculate the differences between rows, this is, for example, all rows values minus the absoute one, but keeping order, I mean, create a new matrix with this differences. This, would be able with mxn matrix, not taking care about the size of this.

Such a example, in this link is the original file of imput

https://www.dropbox.com/s/y3ehqalm3cxmzuj/x.txt

`    desired output --> out`
```    100	100,064	100,26	100,202	100,005 (7)-(1)
100	100,001	99,984	100,033	100,515 (8)-(1)
100	100,052	100,012	100,134	100,475 (9)-(1)
100	99,992	99,939	100,124	100,495 (10)-(1)
100	100,045	100,214	100,262	100,8   (11)-(1)
100	100,03	99,926	100,428	100,437 (12)-(1)```
```    200	200,086	200,499	200,253	200,659 (13)-(1)
200	199,995	200,231	200,278	200,838 (14)-(1)
200	200,009	200,27	200,428	201,306 (15)-(1)
200	199,928	200,032	200,248	201,045 (16)-(1)
200	199,982	200,174	200,779	200,938 (17)-(1)
200	200,058	200,065	200,821	201,094 (18)-(1)```

Depending on the result I will obtain I will post a new question, related with this one but not directly connected with.

Best Regards , and heartfelt thanks.

If i increase the number of rows with the same number in the first column,

```out = bsxfun(@minus,x(7:end,:),x(1,:))
```

should be changed, right?, I need something which detects when the number of the first column is changing.

Thanks
