How to create a list of an array index

20 views (last 30 days)
I am doing a project Euler prime number puzzle but I do not wish to use the Matlab primes function , so I'm building my own.
I am going to use the standard sieve to produce my primes but I wish to store these in a logic array. How do I get the index/cell location of all true values into an array/output as these will be my prime numbers.
Thanks

Can't you just use a counter that increments when you find a prime number?
if itsAPrimeNumber
numberOfPrimesFound = numberOfPrimesFound + 1;
listOfPrimes(numberOfPrimesFound) = yourCurrentNumber;
end

Just do this
primesList = find(ary)+1;
The find() function tells you which elements are non-zero or true.
