How do I change Array element with another array element?

18 views (last 30 days)
I am new to matlab and I apologize if my question confuses you.
Basically, if i have an array A = [0 0 0 0] and then I want to replace each value with another Array B [1 1 0 0] how would I go about that? The reason for this is because A is a temp array and I would be adding it into another larger array, so a 2d matrix.
so B is an input to a function, and I am replacing the values of A with B, then doing some math operations and then adding the final product to another Array C.
Thank you,

A = [0 0 0 0];
B = [1 1 0 0];
A=B
A = 1×4
1 1 0 0

A = [0 0 0 0];
B = [1 1 0 0];
To replace each element of A with the corresponding element of B:
A = B; % since A and B are the same size, just replace all of A with B
or:
A(:) = B; % to preserve the size of A when B has different size
% (as long as the number of elements is the same)
An example of the second usage:
A = [0 0 0 0] % 1-by-4
A = 1×4
0 0 0 0
B = [1 2; 3 4] % 2-by-2
B = 2×2
1 2 3 4
A(:) = B % A stays 1-by-4, but now it contains the elements of B in (column-major) order
A = 1×4
1 3 2 4
