Phil,
What have you tried. This seems straightforward enough.
Could you clarify what you mean by NULL?
In R, it is common to use NA or a more specific version of it.
So assuming you have two vectors containing floats with some NA, then:
C <- A*B
Will give you the products one at a time if the lengths are the same. NA
times anything is NA.
Your second condition is also simple as you want anything below a threshold
to be set to a fixes value.
Since you already have C, above, your condition of:
threshold <- 0.1
C < threshold
The last line returns a Boolean vector you can use to index C to get just
the ones you select as TRUE and thus can change:
Result <- C[C < threshold]
And you can of course do all the above as a one-liner.
Is that what you wanted?

Subject: [R] Multiplying two vectors of the same size to give a third vector
of the same size
People,
I am assuming that what I want to do is easier in R than say Ruby.
I want to do what the Subject says ie multiply the cells in the same
position of two vectors (A and B) to give a result in the same position
in a third vector (C) BUT:
- The values in the cells of A and B are floats between 0.0 and 1.0 or
NULL
- If there is a NULL in the multiplication, then the result in the cell
for C is also a NULL
- If there is a value less than (say) 0.01 in the multiplication, then
the result in the cell for C is 0.0
Any suggestions appreciated!
Phil.
