Hello everybody,
I have a matrix which has 10118 rows and 14 columns. I would like to delete the number of rows having values greater than 100. How can I do this?
Thanks in advance!

%Numbers greater than 100
idx = matrix > 100;
matrix ( ~ ( sum ( idx , 2) == 0 ) , : ) = []
%__________________________
%Numbers lesser than 100
idx = matrix < 100;
matrix ( sum ( idx , 2 ) ~= 0 , : ) = []

@Skyscraper: yes because if any of the numbers in a matrix is less than 100 the whole row is removed, the matrix which you gave contains numbers less than 100 in each row.

@Sky Scrapper: the standard MATLAB practice is to use any:
>> A = [110,0,10,70,15;100,30,50,20,9;50,-150,95,65,7]
A =
110 0 10 70 15
100 30 50 20 9
50 -150 95 65 7
>> B = A(~any(abs(A)>100,2),:) % create a new array B,
B =
100 30 50 20 9
>> A(any(abs(A)>100,2),:) = [] % or delete rows from A.
A =
100 30 50 20 9
