i have a matrix with repeated measures of subjects, e.g. (col 1 =
subject, col 2 = data)

1	7
1	6
1	9
2	8
2	9
2	2
3	4
3	5
3	3

i now would like to have a vector that only carries the different values
of column 1 (only one entry per value -> (1,2,3)).
right now i am doing this with: 


that works rather fine, but "a" now carries characters not numbers.
Since I want to use that vector to extract the data of individual
subjects from "x", I either have to convert characters to numbers (not
elegant) or find a different function that solves my problem.
any ideas ?
