```Hello,

I think I've found a solution, but it's not producing the same answer as
what you're expecting. I think you might've mixed up row and column a few
times, but you should be able to alter the following to your needs. Also,
see ?.bincode:

EB <- matrix(data = c(
1, 271, 179, 359, 178,
57, 279, 279,  52, 239,
59,  59, 278, 118, 334
), nrow = 3, ncol = 5, byrow = TRUE)

# ranges <- list(
#     c(  0,  60),
#     c( 61, 120),
#     c(121, 180),
#     c(181, 240),
#     c(241, 300),
#     c(301, 360)
# )
breaks <- seq.int(0, 360, 60)

codes <- .bincode(EB, breaks, include.lowest = TRUE)
dim(codes) <- dim(EB)

num.ranges <- apply(codes, 1, function(xx) length(unique(xx)))

I hope this helps!
