May be this helps:

 mat1<- matrix(sample(0:50,20,replace=TRUE),nrow=5)
A<- dist(mat1)
A[2:4]<- 0
 mat2<- matrix(sample(1:50,20,replace=TRUE),nrow=5)
B<- dist(mat2)
#         1        2        3        4
#2 49.07138                           
#3  0.00000 28.19574                  
#4  0.00000 55.70458 33.25658

Subject: [R] coping zeros from matrix to another

Dear useRs,i have two distance matrices A and B. The distances in A are linked with distances in B. What i want to do is the following...There are some points in A where distances are zero(those points are apart from usual diagonal of zero values).Whereas, in B the distances at those points are not necessarily zeros . i want "0" at those points in B where distance in A is zero. How can i do that??i hope my question is clearthanks indeed in advance,Eliza
