How can I simplify this?
if a==1; T=S(1); end
if a==2; T=S(2); end
if a==3; T=S(3); end
if a==4; T=S(4); end
if a==5; T=S(5); end
if a==5; T=S(5); end
if a==6; T=S(6); end
if a==7; T=S(7); end
if a==8; T=S(8); end
Thanks

Please, Aadil, do not bump a question after half an hour. The voluntary contributors in the forum answer as fast as possible already, such that it would be more friendly to limit bumping to at least 24 hours.

if a >= 1 && a <= 8
T = S(a);
end

T = S(a(a >= 1 && a <= 8));

Worked perfect thanks, seems I was missing the obvious

@Andrei, if a is greater than 8, then the example in the question and Jan's answer result in T being undefined, while in your answer, T becomes empty.
