I have a matrix and 4 vertices of a rectangle. The rectangle is not aligned with the axes,i.e the rectangle is slanted. I want to extract the data between the 4 vertices into a new matrix. How can i do it? I've been trying to do it for weeks. Thanks

Weeks? Wow. Do yo have the Image Processing Toolbox? If so, you can simply use poly2mask():
[rows, columns] = size(your2Darray);
logicalMap = poly2mask(x, y, rows, columns); % put in coords of the rectangle corners.
extractedValues = your2Darray(logicalMap);

Yes weeks,I know it's a long time- I'm new with programming codes and i'm new with matlab. In your second line you wrote columns and rows- do you mean the number of columns and rows in my rectangle? All i have is the 4 vertices of the slanted rectangle so i don't know how to calculate the number of columns and rows in it.
