I have an array, let it be r1 = rand(1,100).
I need to find max value and a value which is before maximum. How can i do it?
Maimum = max (r1);
p.s Simple example a = [1, 4, 10, 2, 7, 3, 6];
I know that max is 10, and 7 is before my max value. How to find 7, using Matlab?

another option would be
max(a(a<max(a)))

They are both valid, just slightly different on edge cases.
