How do i add tolerance to the code. PLS HELP.

1 view (last 30 days)
MIE is has 3501 values inside it and MIE_2 is a single value. I am trying to find the index of MIE_2 value inside the MIE with next closest possible value so as to plot it using indexing. since MIE_2 us calculated using expression, upto 4 decimals it does not match with values in MIE.
tol = 0.0001;
MIEIdx = find(MIE == (MIE_2),1,'first');

MIEIdx = find(abs(MIE_2 - MIE) <= tol);
This might have 0 or more matches.

[dist, MIEIdx] = min(abs(MIE_2 - MIE));
if dist > tol
%no match
%MIEIdx is the match

No, that first code finds all of the values that are within the tolerance, not just the nearest.

Oh yes, when i run it for different data it gives me 4-5 values with accuracy described as per the tolerance. But it still works for me. thanks.
