Hi all, I have a 1x34 matrix. I want to find the location of the 10 largest values. So the output should be 1x10 and have values like 2,3,6 etc......
Thank you.

[bigvalues, bigidx] = sort(YourMatrix, 'descend');
However, this is not suitable if your values might not be unique. Also, if your values might include NaN then you need to decide whether for your purpose NaN are high or not.

Use the sort() command.
