```Hej,

i need the which() funktion to find the positions of an entry in a matrix.

the entries i'm looking for are : seq(begin,end,0.01) and there are no
empty spaces
i'm searching in the right range.

so i was looking for the results R can find and i recieved this answer.

for (l in
1:length(qr)){print(c(l,nstu[l,1],nsto[l,1],nsto[l,1]-nstu[l,1],(nsto[l,1]-nstu[l,1])*100,which(sp1[,1]==nstu[l,1]),(nsto[l,1]-nstu[l,1])*100+which(sp1[,1]==nstu[l,1]),which(r[,1]==nstu[l,1]),(nsto[l,1]-nstu[l,1])*100+which(r[,1]==nstu[l,1])))}

as it is obvious there are a lot of numbers for r, where R find nothing
and some in sp1 where r find nothing.

and here some more informations to my curiosity:

> nstu[10,1]
[1] 84.68
> r[2225,1]
[1] 84.68
> is(r)
[1] "matrix"    "array"     "structure" "vector"
> is(nstu)
[1] "matrix"    "array"     "structure" "vector"
> nstu[11,1]
[1] 84.38
> r[2195,1]
[1] 84.38
> which(r==nstu[10,1])
[1] 2225
> which(r==nstu[11,1])
integer(0)

why is it like that?

Thanks for a answer
