Thanks for providing answers to R-help, but:

  1. Please quote the original question for the mailing list readers of us.
  2. Please reply also to the original poster who may not be subscribed to the list.
  3. In order to do the above more efficient, you actually want to use rowSums(A) rather than the apply() version given above.

Best,
Uwe Ligges
