I have a column of values:
43
90
91
128
191
192
I would like to remove the values that are close to each other in value, but keep the highest value.
I would want the column to look like this:
43
91
128
192
Is this possible or should I rethink my way of doing this?

One possibility:
x=[43
90
91
128
191
192];
[~,~,G]=uniquetol(x,10,'DataScale',1);
splitapply(@max,x,G)
ans = 4×1
43 91 128 192

x=sort(x);%make sure x is sorted
x(diff(x)<2)=[];
