Hi
I am having problems in using the ismember function, so I want to replace ismember and I need help in replacing the function.
Below is example code
INData = [
0.0120849609375
0.014190673828125
0.015838623046875

dMark = [7 13 30];
s_data = ismember(1:size(INData(:,1),1),dMark);
s_data =
1×34 logical array

I need help in replacing isemember function.
Thank you

The ismember function is doing exactly what you told it to do! What’s the problem?

My pleasure!
The Coder apparently does not do autoimatic explicit expansion, as MATLAB has since R2016b. In order to get the correct result, I subtracted the second argument from the first, using bsxfun, that does the expansion, so that both arguments become the same size. (There are other ways to do that, however bsxfun is the fastest and most efficient way.) The resulting matrix is 0 where the element values are the same, so the first logical operation returns a matrix where the values that are 0 as true (or 1), and using sum over the columns produces the desired vector. This creates a numeric vector that becomes a logical vector with the second logical operation, setting the elements of the vector to true if they are equal to 1. The result is the desired logical vector.

Thanks a lot for all the efforts and help. I am greatful for your explantion as well.

As always, my pleasure!
This was an interesting problem!

An alternative approach
dMark = [7 13 30];
s_data = false(1, size(INData, 1));
s_data(dMark) = 1;

Matlab on 8 Oct 2020
This doesn't work,
Please check the Output of s_data
K>> s_data(dMark)
ans =
1×3 logical array
1 1 1
expected out is
s_data1 =
1×34 logical array
Columns 1 through 32
0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0
Columns 33 through 34
0 0

Don't check the output of s_data(dMark). Just run
s_data
after running my code.
Matlab on 8 Oct 2020
Your interpretation is right s_data give right output!
