This is similar to FAQ 7.31. my is *printed* as 1, but in fact it is slightly smaller. Try print(my, digits = 15). Rounding my works.

m<-matrix(nrow=10,ncol=10)
i<-1001
mx<-trunc(i/1000)
my<-round((i/1000-mx)*1000, 0)
m[mx, my]<-1

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to say what the experiment died of.

Onderwerp: [R] Matrix set value problem

the following code:

m<-matrix(nrow=10,ncol=10)
i<-1001
mx<-trunc(i/1000)
my<-(i/1000-mx)*1000
m[mx,my]<-1

does not assign the value at the matrix m[1,1] Any hints?

Thanks
v
