I was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of what function to use in order to collapse a logical array into a 1-dimensional vector of strings containing the logical indices.
This is the clunky way I'm currently doing it:

A = [1,1,0;0,0,1]
A =
     1 1 0
     0 0 1


for i=1:size(A,1)

strindx =


Obviously I want to get rid of the loop for large A's
My thoughts would be to somehow generate a matrix B from A to look something like :
B = [1,2,0;3,0,0]

B =

     1 2 0
     3 0 0

Then somehow strip the zeros, and collapse columns into a 1-dimensional vector!
Any ideas?

Thanks for the tips...
(PS- end purpose of this is just record keeping, i.e. keeping track of the logical array, A is generally highly sparse, and the rows have specific individual meanings, hence the desire to collapse to 1D column vector - plus for convenience of reading, it gets dumped into excel..) So if there is another way...
