I have a Matrix of 400 rows and 40 columns. I want to completely remove rows 3 and 9 to get a matrix with 398 rows. How can I do it in MATLAB.

If you have a matrix A and want to delete the 3rd and 9th rows, you can use the command:
A([3,9],:) = ;

Matrix_2 = Matrix_1( [1:2,4:8,10:end] , : )

I'm not sure if this is new syntax or not, but it works with R2012a and it's fast and simple.
x = rand(100);
x([3,9],:) = ;
toc; % Elapsed time is 0.000230 seconds.

m = m(setdiff(1:size(m,1),[3,9]),:);

Please do not attach a new (and very vague) question in the section for answers of another questions. Such thread-hijacking is confusing only, because it is not longer clear, to which question an answer belong. Please open your own question and delete this pseudo-answer. Thanks.
