Thanks for any advices

# I do not know where are the examples how to mark groups
# based on signal occurence in the additional variable: cf. variable c2,
# How to calculate different calculations for groups defined by (split by occurence of c2 characteristic data)

```c0<-rbind( 1,      2 , 3, 4,      5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10,11,      12,13,14,15,16,17     )
c0
c1<-rbind(10,     20 ,30,40,     50,10,60,20,30,40,50,      30,10, 0,NA,20,10.3444)
```
c1

C.df<-data.frame(cbind(c0,c1,c2))
