example: I have one random number matrix a. a=[2 3 4 5 ],and then I want to use a matrix to create another matrix b depending on a.
b=[1 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0].The elements in a is to describe the number of 0 and 1 in matrix b.
Please don't use for loop,it's too slow.

"Please don't use for loop,it's too slow." In which context are you using the function if the following code is too slow?
If a has length 10000 this code will run in 0.009 s on my computer:
tic
b = ones(1,sum(a));
acumsum = cumsum(a);
for ii = 2:2:length(a)
b(acumsum(ii-1)+1:acumsum(ii))=0;
end
