Hi there, I am new in matlab and trying to solve this task. I have 20 experimental blocks and what I need to do is to display different instruction for different blocks
so that if B == [1,2,5,6,9,10,13,14,17,18]; display instruction A; and if B== [3,4,7,8,11,12,15,16,19,20]; display instruction B;
Can you reccommend me a command or help me how to solve this? Thank you very much.

Very simple. Assume your block (vector) to test is X:
caseA=[1,2,5,6,9,10,13,14,17,18];
caseB= [3,4,7,8,11,12,15,16,19,20];
if isequal(X,caseA)
disp('option A');
elseif isequal(X,caseB)
disp('option B');
else
disp('no options available');
end
Whereas, if X is just a number and you want to test if it is in caseA or caseB do this:
caseA=[1,2,5,6,9,10,13,14,17,18];
caseB= [3,4,7,8,11,12,15,16,19,20];
if ismember(X,caseA)
disp('option A');
elseif ismember(X,caseB)
disp('option B');
else
disp('no options available');
end
