Hello!

Let assume that we have only 2 kinds of integer numbers input data: 2 and 4:

a = [
2
2
2
2
4
4
4
2
4
.
.
.
n];

and I want to create from it sth like that:
d = [
0 0
0 0
0 0
0 0
1 1
1 1
1 1
0 0
1 1
.
.
.
n];

I want to translate n rows of data.

if one value in vector a = 2, i want it to be 0 0, and if another value equals 4 to be 1 1. I know how to do it but I don't know how to write a code.

%=================
a = [2;4;2;242;2;4;4;4;4;2];
[a b] = size(a)
i = 1;
for i <b
if b(i)=2
d = [what?]
else
d = [what?]
end
i = i + 1;
end
d
%=================

How to create the output vector that will save in correct order the data from vector a?

Thanks for help!
