Hi everyone,
I am trying to plot one bar graph with using twos sets of different sizes.
The following code works fine if the datasets are equal in size, but doesnt if not.
h(:,1)=one;
h(:,2)=two;
[y,x]=hist(h);
bar(x,y, 'group');
title('Area comparison');
xlabel('Area'); % x-axis label
ylabel('Frequency'); % y-axis label
legend('XZ','YZ');
saveas(gcf,mypath);
one and two are my datasets.
would you know if there is a way of doing through matlab?
Thanks for your help :)
Flo

One simple way is this:
none = length(one);
ntwo = length(two);
h = nan(max(none,ntwo),2);
h(1:none,1)=one;
h(1:ntwo,2)=two;
[y,x] = hist(h);
bar(x,y, 'group');

Thank you Mike.
It seems to work fine, but for one of my calculation I get one really weird result. At the bin number 160 the blue bar seems to reach to top of the graph. do you think it is due to the code?
