Hi guys,
I need your help in solving the following problem: Given a row vector, a column vector and an index create a matrix in the following manner (look at example) without using cell arrays and the implementation should be fast:
Remark: "index" correspond to the row column!

Thank you very much, i have solved it using repmat.

function out = fun1(r,c,ii)
out = ones(numel(c),1)*r;
out(:,ii) = c;
end
use
r = [2 7 3 5];
c = [2;7;10];
ii = 2;
out = fun1(r,c,ii);

jack,
Please read the repmat() documentation to understand its interface and functionality. With repmat, you can stack copies of your row vector into a matrix.
You should be able to determine how many copies of your row vector to stack based on the length() or size() of your column vector.
From there, you just have to insert the column vector into the appropriate column using array indexing .
