Define inner as in:
http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au/R/e4/help/08/08/19562.html and use that with identical to define an inner product:

m <- matrix(c(1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 2), 2) # test matrix m
colSums(inner(m, u <- unique(m,,2), identical)) u

Please provide actual code to create test examples and expected results when you post. Read the last line to every message in r-help and the posting guide.

For example, let's say I have a matrix with 6 columns, 2 of these are filled with the value of 1 and the other 4 are filled with the value of 0. I would then like to have a command that tells me what the unique columns are (so columns with 1s and columns with 0s) and the number of each type of column (so 2 columns of 1s and 4 columns of 0s) that occur in the matrix.
