Hello,

how can I best fill a (fixed) matrix with vectors of varying lengths by column, setting the superfluous elements to zero? Here is my code:

l<-sum(x)+1 y<-c(1,rep(0,l-1)) for (i in x) y<-y+c(rep(0,i),y)[1:l]

}

mat<-matrix(0, nrow=sum(v)+1, ncol=length(v)) for (i in 1:length(v)) mat[,i]=mat[,i]+binc(v[1:i])

the expression in the for-loop produces an error since mat[,i] and binc(v[1:i]) are of unequal lengths, except on the last iteration.

Thanks in advance,

Serguei
