Dear members;
I have the code word C of length 'M' and I have also the received vector V after decoding of the same length 'M' as C
For example:
V=[1 0 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 0]
C=[1 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0]
I want firstly detecting the position of each bold bit of V and than correct it by adding 1 to those bits (because in mod2: 0+1=1 and 1+1=0) in order to obtain V=C
How can I do that please

Ah, so what you really want to do is find the index of the vector where V(i) is not equal to C(i).

Exactly yes, and then correct the bold bits of V in order to obtain them equal to C

Hi Afluo,
You can try something like the below to assess where the diffrences between the arrays are; after this just cycle to these locations and change the value as you need.
I hope this helps,
Christopher
V=[1 0 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 0]
C=[1 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0]
diff_Check = V ~= C;

I agree with Christopher McCausland , this does describe what you want to do but is missing the final step which is quite straightforward and something you could fill in yourself,
V=[1 0 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 0];
C=[1 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0];
V(V~=C) = V(V~=C) + 1;
mod(V,2)
ans = 1×10
1 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0

Thank you so much. It works
