Hi,
i am trying to do a small job but it's bugging and i don't know what's happening.

let's say i have four matrix, M01_a, M02_a, M01_b, M02_b that looks like this
col1 col2

1         20
2         25
3         26
4          30
5         35
6         64
7         75
8         80
9         85

and a big matrix m:(21044*18)

what i want to do is
m1<- rbind(m[M01_a[,2],], m[M01_b[,2],]) m2 <- rbind(m[M02_a[,2],], m[M02_b[,2],])

the best will be to integrate this in a loop, so i just did this for (i in 1:2){
mb<- rbind(m[paste("M0",i,"_a[,2]", sep=""),], m[paste("M0",i,"_b[,2]", sep=""),])
}

but this didn't work :-(
i've been tring the whole afternoon , plz some help.

thx,
josephine
