If I have a character array for example:
I want to introduce a vector for example B in which if the it says 'high' in A I would have 1 and 0 for the ones that are 'low', something like:
How can I do that? Thanks in advance.

Something like this
A = {'high','low','low'};
B = strcmp(A,'high')
B = 1×3 logical array
1 0 0
Bear in mind that this only tests whether elements of A contain 'high'. It's implied that the only possible contents are 'high' and 'low', so that should be sufficient. If it's not, then we need to ask how other inputs should be represented.
