I have the following problem:
My data is a matrix of multiple columns and rows. The column I am interested
in looks like that (I think it is a column in a matrix that contains a
 A B C
 D E
 A D E
 C E F
I now want to look for a special word (for example C; in my case the single
entries are words, not single letters) and return a vector, like
 TRUE FALSE TRUE
Is there an easy way to do it?
Sorry, I am really a beginner and I did not really solve the problem by
looking into other threads...
Thanks a lot,
