     I am new to R and i am looking for a way to extract a subset from a
I have a vector of number oscillating around zero (a decreasing
autocorrelation function) and i would like to extract only the first
positive part of the function (from zero lag to the lag where the function
inverts its sign for the first time).
I have tried


but this obviously extract all the positive intervals not only the first one.
 Is there a logical statement i can use in subset? I prefer not to use an
if statement that would probably slow down the code.
Thanks a lot,
